Harry Reid blames Obamacare delays on… the American people

As the deadline to sign up for Obamacare quickly approaches, Senator Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) offered a bizarre excuse for why the open enrollment period was extended. According to Sen. Reid, too many Americans just aren’t “educated on how to use the Internet.”

Yes, you read that correctly. In 2014, Sen. Reid actually believes a large portion of the American population remains computer illiterate. Yesterday, Sen. Reid told reporters:

REID: There’s no pick-up or delay. We have hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up who didn’t get through. There are some people who are not like my grandchildren who can handle everything so easily on the Internet, and these people need a little extra time. It’s not — the example they gave us is a 63-year-old woman came into the store and said, ‘I almost got it. Every time I just about got there, it would cut me off.’ We have a lot of people just like this through no fault of the Internet, but because people are not educated on how to use the Internet.

In the ultimate display of elitism, Sen. Reid is now admitting he believes the American people are stupid. This behavior, however, is nothing new. In 2008, Sen. Reid lamented the “smelly” tourists that fill the Capitol Building in the summer months.

“My staff tells me not to say this, but I’m going to say it anyway,” said Reid at the time. “In the summer because of the heat and high humidity, you could literally smell the tourists coming into the Capitol. It may be descriptive but it’s true.”

“Look, people are stupid and they stink. He told us that before,” Pat joked. “I mean it just makes my head explode. And no amount of duct tape holds the pieces… Because he knows there’s hiccups and delays. He knows all of these things. He knows it’s not the stupidity of the American people on the internet. For the love of Heaven, almost everybody knows how to do the internet. Almost everybody knows how to at least get on the website and work your way through, if the website is halfway decent, which this is not.”

The Obama Administration has actually been forced to publically acknowledge Obamacare’s shortcomings, and, yet Sen. Reid places all the blame on the American people who are footing the bill for this disaster.

“The lies are just agonizing,” Stu concluded. “When it’s the politician’s problem, they lie to us over and over again.”

Last month, Pat made a very compelling argument for why he is, in fact, the “worst living human being on the planet,” and this is just the latest example. In case you need a refresher, check out the article HERE.

      Well, one thing is crystal clear,…Harry Reid, Ms Pelosi, Jarrett, Eric Holder, Kerry, Hillary Clinton, Schumer, Podesta, BarneyFrank, Van Jones, Axelrod, Obama, and others weeds are there at the helm of our country (pulverizing it) due to the massive amount of people that thought that OBAMA AND HIS GANG could really do something good for the country and so did vote, without doing any research nor investigation about who they were voting for,….so, anyway went ahead and blindly – loaded with emotional factors – did vote for the democrat ticket…not once but twice! (2008 & 2012)… and as result they got cheated not once but twice! ..and still getting cheated…

      …and now, (and this is the funny part that deals with quantum-physics factors)

      …and now,it seems, that all of them are going to every single store around the country – with pathetic anxiety – , looking for,… and expecting to find (with a lot of hope) a TIME MACHINE,…. so they all can go back in TIME and undo their monumental, and brutal mistake.

      So, once again; – To those who voted for, and wanted Obama;…..You wanted Obama? well, eat Obama now, choke on it!

          Very well, you are bringing out (what you may call) the accomplishments of the so called ‘president’ (Mr Barack Obama).

          Well, lets’ be brief on this;….


          A BRIEF REVIEW

          At the twilight of the Obama regime,….what we have?

          The past FRAUDULENT PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS (and re-elections) brought as result THE OBAMA GANG CHICAGO MAFIA-STYLE ADMINISTRATION…(courtesy of ACORN, SEIU,…and others unruling organizations at the service of the extremists lilberal-democrat factions)

          A ‘PRESIDENTIAL CONSORTIOUM’ made of taxcheaters, thieves, crooks, inepts, socialist-marxists, communists, …a terrorists friendly-oriented group, hired a gifted in words (Mr Obama) to pose as president and telegraph everything formulated..or invented under UNCONSTITUTIONAL PRACTICES.

          In other words, a tapestry for special selfish and greedy interets…ultimately conducted to the DESTRUCTION OF OUR GREAT COUNTRY.

          For near six years with Mr Obama – posing as president – we have;

          1.ECONOMY FOUR TIMES WORST IN DEFFICIT AND OTHERS DETERMINANTS (such as job loss). The so called ‘improvement’ is showing a ‘YO-YO EFFECT’ IN THE MARKET …so not substancial upgrading is taking place… as chanted by the liberal-democrat factions.



          3.PLANS/PROJECTS ARE DECIMATNG THE STRENGTH IN THE ENTREPRENURIAL MOVEMENT IN THE PRIVATE SECTOR AND AS RESUTL THE AMERICAN INDIVIDUALITY IS LOOSING POWER…as example the so called ‘health care reform’ and the ‘gobal warming hoax agenda’ …just to mention two.


          This has been executed due to a MEGA-CORRUPTION WIDELY DISEMINATED IN WASHINGTON.

        You point is well taken and I totally agree. As a believer, (Christian) spiritual(relationship) vs rules. I can say 8 million evangelicals did not vote. Some because they felt that voting for a Believer who practices his faith in the Mormon pathway was wrong. Wow…I am so upset with my our church members and the denomination as a whole. The damage with Obama death/rationed care is that we all end up paying. At 58 I know in the near future I will not be eligible for certain procedures based on my age. What gets me really angry is the debt I am passing down to my kids and grand kids! All this wasted money. The states are all passing laws now to recoup the money spent via Medicare( Elder care) from peoples estates when they die, So when I am eligible for medicare, any money spent by the system on my care will be given to the state before my children can inherit anything I leave them!

        We need to give some grace to those who were sucked in by the bridge cards and OB phones. They were made slaves to the system, without getting it. They indeed will be the first to choke on the cut backs, and the system knows right where they are per the technology on their free phones and tracking their bridge card expenses. It is very sad indeed!:(

          Weather you liked Ron Paul or not does not matter, but when Boehner, Romney and the Republican Party crooked him out of his fairly elected delegates and crammed through the rule changes at the RNC they the Republicans loss the election right then and there. I don’t think Ron Paul could have won but they wanted to make sure he did not get the nomination and so they hook and crooked the guy. Independents saw what was going on and they sat out the election and the rest is history. If the Republican Party does not make a change then it will stay dead for years to come.

    So these people will become computer literate in the next two weeks? And who is naive?

    Seeing as Sebelius is unable to tell us how many of the purported 6M actually are paid up, the House needs to demand a list of those 6M. Then a simple email or letter to each 6M requiring them to verify if they are on a plan AND have paid their premiums. All this crabbing and doing nothing about the actual numbers is getting us nowhere. These people are liars. For all we know, their 6M could be inflated by 5 million. Time to find out the truth.

    • Guardian

      I heard approx only1 million are actually paid for because the back end of the programs still don’t work. They had to go directly to the insurance companies to accomplish it.

    Ah! yes….Mr Harry Reid;…..let’s be brief on his case;….

    The man is illegal practices and fraud all over;….is he not?

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is at the center of a growing political controversy after it was revealed Thursday that more payments from his campaign funds had been made to his granddaughter than previously reported.

    The Nevada Democrat promised earlier this week to reimburse $16,787 his campaign gave to Ryan Elisabeth Reid in 2013 for what was described as payments for “holiday gifts.” Those payments were reportedly made to purchase items from Elisabeth Ryan Reid, who has her own line of jewelry. Reid defended the payments, saying they complied with Federal Election Commission standards that allow the purchase of goods from relatives if those goods are sold at fair market value.

    Let’s go slightly further….on another issue or two…….a short history reminder;

    Actually it matters not that Mr Obama is not getting support from the G-20,…for in here , in this country he has benevolent and faithful supporters like Mr Harry Reid.

    Majority Leader Harry Reid says he thinks they will get 60 votes in the Senate for Syria


    Ah! Harry Reid, a very colourful fella.This man will claim that the final vote is in favour for the Syria strike.

    This man will cheat, manipulate, alter , ….do all type of things to – via fraud – the ‘Yes” for the Syria strike, comes afloat.

    Evidently everything is going south for the current administration now in Washington for Mr Reid is doing more manipulations to get his whishes come through.

    This is typical from the liberal-democrat spectrum …and is so natural – for the obvious – in the case of Mr Harry Reid. After all democrats cannot have anything done unless they use illegal practices, dubious and illegal practices ….unless they use fraud.

    This man ( Mr Harry Reid) will cheat, manipulate, alter , ….do all type of things.




    Are we all clear on this? Yes?….or….No?

    And there we have the American scenario for this war;…a war so wanted by Mr John Kerry for he needs this for his special future purposes of to become the next president in our country and finish the job – of destruction – started under the so called ‘president’ , Mr Barack Obama.

    Are we all clear on this?

    Was at CVS today (I’m insured through 3-31). Today my prescription, while insured and with a coupon was $32.50. When I go to refill it next month, being UNINSURED with coupon, the same prescription will only be $30. It will be cheaper to get the drug being uninsured than being insured, and I’ll be saving $430 per month on the insurance premium. 2 of my MDs who won’t take the Obamasurance (although I’m not going to buy it) will see me as an uninsured, cash paying patient. It will cost me less to see them paying cash than it did while I was insured and paid a co-pay. No wonder they had to pass a law to make you buy insurance. WHAT A SCAM. Looking forward to the money I’ll save being uninsured.

    • Guardian

      I have been going uninsured for years now, paying out of pocket for the doc, labs, meds, x-rays etc. I would have to pay it anyway to reach a deductible, and I save over $12,000/yr on insurance. I have saved a nice sum of money that will come in handy during retirement, if I don’t have to spend some to cover hospital costs for anythinng. Even if I do, I will still come out ahead.

    “We have no plans to extend the open enrollment period. In fact, we don’t actually have the statutory authority to extend the open enrollment period in 2014.” — Health and Human Services (HHS) official Julie Bataille, March 11

    “Once that 2014 open enrollment period has been set, they are set permanently.” – HHS official Michael Hash, March 11

    “March 31st is the deadline for enrollment. You’ve heard us make that clear.” – Press Secretary Jay Carney, March 21

    “There is no delay beyond March 31.” – HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, March 12

    I think the main thing that an extension will do is further skew the risk pool. Internet savvy people who want and planned on having insurance this year have already enrolled. Therefore, the bulk of any additional enrollees, the ones that Harry says are not internet savvy, will be older, and likely less healthy people. The more the risk pool gets skewed, the higher our 2015 premiums are going to be. The higher
    the 2015 premiums will be, the more likely some people will drop their insurance next year because they can no longer afford it. The more people drop their insurance, the higher our uninsured rate will go. And we’re back to square one.

    I don’t consider the ‘internet’ is a ‘legal communication method’ for signing up for something as important as Government mandated National health care (Obama-crap-care). That is what ‘first class mail’ and ‘certified mail’ is for. I don’t feel Americans were ‘legally notified’ of this rammed-down-your-throat mandate.

    Idiot Obama, his administration and the radical Democrats can not hold individuals for the expense (monthly internet cost, cost of PC/laptop, printer, router, etc) and the knowledge for using the internet/windows/software, etc.

    I have never received a mailing/booklet explaining Obamacare (if anyone can possibly explain it), how to sign up online, in person, how to obtain mail-in forms, etc.

    In addition due to all the ‘executive changes’ (30+) from the Congressional passed law, it would seem the law, Obamacare, would be ‘null and void’.

    Has anyone noticed Democrats are corrupt, deceptive and lairs (more so than RINOs)?

    Remember, Democrats and only Democrats gave you ObamaCare. Repeal ObamaCare and throw out every idiot Democrat who voted for ObamaCare.

    Vote for the most Constitutional, Conservative, Christian candidate with American Values and who has a chance of winning in all elections – Federal, State and Local – That pretty much rules out Democrats.

    Well that’s ok I blame this entire debacle on him and Barry. Here is the question the almighty Progressive doesn’t want to answer. Is ACA based on one man paying for another? And the answer is yes. One man pays a higher rate if he is more successful so another man can pay less for being less successful. And it also expands to those who will not pay at all. Again the producer’s taxes pay. And what is the philosophy of “each according to need?”

    It is Marxism

    Here is what I get from the Progressive who uses the same anti reason he does when defending illegal immigration.

    “Well what about the progressive income tax? Is that also Marxist.” Yes.
    It should have never been implemented. It is not up for one man to pay more so
    another may pay less—or not at all.

    “Well what about Australia, England and most of Europe? They have the
    same type systems? Are they Marxist?” Of course they are. They are the epitome
    of one man pays so another may not. That’s why you cannot be a raging success
    in Europe. They tax you to death to pay for others, many on welfare.

    “Well the insurance monopolies….” Stop right there. You’re right. Monopolies need to be ceased. And so do conglomerate monopoly healthcare organizations. And the GOP has done zilch for this. And that has nothing to do with implementing
    Marxism. Implementing Marxism is not the answer. Fee for service and the
    riddance of insurance companies for routine visits would do it. Followed by a
    much cheaper catastrophic insurance plan. Few would use it. Doctors’ visit fees
    and routine labs and such would decrease by up to 80%. How do I know this? It’s
    been tried and proven in Oklahoma. But that means no more free rides unless
    charity organizations step in. And they would for the truly needy. Not for the
    couch sitting obese patient who is on welfare. They pay if they want to show up
    every other day for their chronic back pain. How do I know the Medicaid patient
    is like this most of the time? Before I was a writer I was a provider. It’s not
    every Medicaid patient. It is well over 90% of them. They are the largest
    abusers of the system. Don’t bother arguing with that one Mr. Progressive. You
    don’t have the years of experience in the field. I do.

    If we continue ACA we will collapse economically—which as my fiction predicts may
    be the end goal of these Marxists in our government. And the one thing we will
    all share equally then is misery and oppression.

    The worst scum in the world, ReidiculousO’sbitch, knows all Americans are smelly liars, and that Americans are stupid about the law, since the law is stupid! a handy-dandy timeline of some of the law’s most prominent delays:
    March 25: Final enrollment deadline extended. The March 31 deadline — the end of enrollment for 2014 — will be loosened for people with special sign-up circumstances.
    March 14: High risk pools extended. The special, temporary coverage for people with serious pre-existing conditions — which was only supposed to last until the health insurance exchanges were in place — was extended a third time for another month.
    Feb. 10: Employer mandate delayed. This time, businesses with between 50 and 100 workers were given until 2016 to offer coverage, and the mandate will be phased in for employers with more than 100 workers.
    Jan. 14: High risk pools extended. The high-risk insurance pools, which originally had been slated to close Jan. 1, had already been extended once.
    Dec. 24: Enrollment deadline extended. In a message on HealthCare.gov, customers were told they could get help finishing their Jan. 1 applications if they were already in line on Dec. 24.
    Dec 12: Enrollment deadline extended. Customers on the federal enrollment website were given nearly two more weeks to sign up for coverage effective Jan. 1.
    Nov. 27: SHOP delayed. Online enrollment for the federal health insurance exchanges for small businesses was delayed.
    Nov. 21: Open enrollment delayed for 2015. The administration pushed back next year’s enrollment season by a month.
    July 2: Employer mandate delayed. The administration declared that it wouldn’t enforce the fines in 2014 for businesses with more than 50 full-time workers who don’t offer health coverage. The fines were pushed back to 2015.
    Nov. 15, 2012: Exchange deadline delayed. The Department of Health and Human Services gave states an extra month to decide whether they would set up their own health insurance exchanges — a decision they announced just one day before the original deadline.
    Clearly, lawful deadlines mean nothing to Obama.

    Harry Reid obviously anticipates something big is coming his way this November. He’s looking for excuses for the lying that he, his Campaigner/Vacationer-in-Chief, and DemocRAT Buddies have been doing, e.g., “If you like your health care plan, you can keep it……PERIOD.” “You’re going to save $2500 per year under the [Un]Affordable Care Act.” Bull Chips!!! If you haven’t lost your health care plan yet, don’t worry you will after the extensions expire that were illegally changed to get past the elections.

    Wouldn’t it be a shame if voters this November made him the new Minority Leader so he and the whole liberal cabal get their richly deserved retribution?

    We need to show up on election day this November without fail and vote every DemocRAT out of office.

    Harry Reid is an obsolete liberal that needs to be sent packing back to Nevada. Why the people of Nevada have kept voting for him is a mystery to me and many others.

    Harry is blaming the American people because he can’t figure out a way to blame it on Bush.

    They have a place for people like Harry. It’s called a “rest home”. Hope he takes it because we need a rest.

    Yes, Sleazy harry is correct about the stupidity of people, but it is only about the people in NV who keep returning such crap as harry to the senate and the senate for keeping him in power, and Obama for kissing his butt.

    Isn’t Reid now being investigated for funneling $16,000 of campaign funds to his Granddaughter? The man has zero, actually below zero, credibility, ethics, morals or common sense. He needs booted out of DC, stripped of his lifetime cushy benefits and if found guilty of theft fitted for an orange jumpsuit. People like him are reprehensible and have no business inflicting themselves on us.

    Term limits and periodic mental fitness testing for all politicians would fix this. Bye bye Biden, Reid, Pelosi, Boehnerd, McConnell, Graham, Conyers, et al. Would
    we allow these people to handle our personal checking accounts or drive a school
    bus full of our grandkids? Heck no.

    There should be age limits as well. Discriminating? Yup, but even the military has age limits because it recognizes age related mental and physical changes. Like the military, we should want a ready force.

    HOUSE: 1 is over 90, 8 are over 80 and 36 are over 70

    SENATE: 3 are over 80 and 16 are over 70

    And why did the senile old fart use a 63 year old woman, as his example. Reid, the chauvinist, forgot he was in the party, who are the only protector of women.
