It’s time to listen to the “forgotten” people worrying about jobs, food, medicine and other basic needs instead of focusing on political skirmishes, Glenn Beck said on Friday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program.”
He played a heartbreaking clip of a Maryland caller talking to a D.C. radio show about his circumstances of losing his job, being unable to find work, not having money for medicine and rapidly running out of funds. “I consider myself one of the forgotten men and women,” the caller said, tears choking his voice. “We need tax cuts. … We need jobs.”
“This is why we’re having problems in the country,” Glenn said. “This is who is not being heard.”
He contrasted the man's plight with the people who were helped under the Obama administration and wondered why helping some people mean ignoring the rest of the country.
We tend to divide people by Republicans and Democrats, rich and poor, but we forget about the people who quietly work hard each day and have tried to provide for their families only to end up struggling, Glenn noted.
