Glenn Beck spoke to a crowd in Salt Lake City during his “American Revival” tour and broke down in tears as he told the audience about his recent diagnosis.

Beck told the crowd of around 6,000 people:

“A couple of weeks ago I went to the doctor because of my eyes, I can’t focus my eyes…he did all kinds of tests and he said, ‘you have macular dystrophy …you could go blind in the next year. Or, you might not.’ I said, did you just charge me a thousand dollars for knowing what I knew my whole life?”

Beck didn’t miss an opportunity to take a shot at health care reform, saying, to laughter and applause, that “I went to the best doctor I could find, while I could still go to the best doctor I can find.”

Beck became emotional again as he talked about possibly losing his sight.
