A day after MSNBC host Ed Schultz used Glenn Beck’s illness to argue for Obamacare, Beck responded in a post on “The Ed Show’s” Facebook page, trumpeting how the power of the private market helped fight his illness, not big government.

Below is Beck’s comment, in it’s entirety:
“Sorry Ed, it was a private center doing ground breaking work for VETS —-that the va won’t pay for —- that helped heal me.
It is private people like me that are gladly funding the research because we feel it is our honor to serve and our responsibility to CHOOSE to serve our fellow men.
Talk with the doctors or better yet the patients I sat with in the therapy rooms. They will tell you all about public health and the VA.
If private care like this were not available many like me and much worse may be dead. Private charity and private clinics pave the way on experimental treatment.
It is a rich blessing to us all that we live in a country where we can live side by side and so vehemently disagree and yet still be able to treat the other with respect.
We all have different paths and belief but you can take the public route and I will choose private. It is only when I would force you to take my route that one should cry foul. Of course that works in the other direction as well.
May God bless you and your team.”
