• Disgusting: Ed Schultz Uses Glenn Beck’s Brain Illness To Push Obamacare

    Can you say desperation?

    MSNBC’s liberal primetime tool Ed Schultz exploited the revelation about Glenn Beck’s failing health–which the radio host revealed Monday on The Glenn Beck Program—to push Obamacare.

    Shultz said Beck should come forward and do America a “real favor” and publicly support a national healthcare system.

    “He’s certainly been through quite a medical ordeal. While plagued by illness, Beck was able to find care,” Shultz said. But not every American is fortunate enough to be able to afford the kind of care that Glenn Beck can, according to Shultz. “Someone without insurance would not have the resources to see any doctors at all,” he added. “Now, listening to Beck, can you imagine what that would be like?”

    “I don’t know Beck, I have no desire to know him. I’ve had my battles with him over the years, no big deal. It’s media mudslinging, whatever,” Schultz said. “But I’m curious about his motivation for sharing this illness with his viewers and people that basically are followers and worshippers of what the guy says and does. I hope that his story motivates those who think that Obamacare is bad, that maybe they will rethink the situation, that seeing a doctor and having it covered is paramount to a good life, to a chance at a good life.”

    What a buffoon.

    Glenn Beck runs a multimedia company with offices in New York City and Dallas, Texas. Beck owes it to his 300 employees, family, friends, and viewers to be honest with them. Beck didn’t have to open up about his condition, but he did. He’s certainly never shied away from letting his true feelings be known on national TV.

    The terrible irony is that Ed Schultz is so blinded by ideology that he can’t even see how socialized medicine and government-centered healthcare systems destroy the quality of healthcare wherever they are tried. Wealthy individuals like Glenn Beck, and more pointedly, Ed Schultz, can afford stellar medical care and bypass government-run catastrophes. And that is why conservatives and libertarians advocate more competition and less mandates in the health-care marketplace: To have insurance providers compete for customers based off of actual needs and demand, rather than the political diktats coming down from D.C.

    Ed Shultz using a sick man’s illness to propagandize about a law that half the country never wanted is beyond disgusting. But, unfortunately, it’s not beneath the little-watched MSNBC. It’s no wonder their ratings are cratering.
