After the Supreme Court delivered another victory for Obamacare on Thursday, Glenn Beck said “the country as you know it, and as it was designed, is done.”
“The system that our founders put together, which was follow the Constitution and three equal but separate branches of government that each have their own specific role, is over,” Beck said on his radio program. “We no longer live in that America. That is done now.”
In a 6-3 decision on King vs. Burwell, the Supreme Court handed President Barack Obama his second major win on his signature health care law, upholding nationwide tax subsidies for millions of Americans.
Justice Scalia, reading part of his dissent from the bench, said, “We should start calling this law SCOTUScare” because of how the Supreme Court has repeatedly changed aspects of the president’s law in order to uphold it.
“I don’t know how you get around it, guys,” Beck’s co-host Stu Burguiere agreed, arguing that the Supreme Court has become both judicial and legislative. “They’re freaking inserting words into laws after they’re passed. They’re putting words into laws that aren’t there. The design of this country with this system is completely gone.”
Beck said America needs a “reset” because there is “nothing left” of the system as it was created.
