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.
