Reid On Need for ObamaCare Extension: People 'Not Educated' About Internet
Fox News ^ | March 26, 2014 | Staff

Posted on 03/26/2014 3:08:05 PM PDT by lbryce

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid tried to explain the Obama administration's latest decision to extend a key ObamaCare deadline by saying people just "are not educated on how to use the Internet."

The explanation, which glossed over the myriad technical problems HealthCare.gov had for weeks after its October launch, came as the administration faced Republican criticism for a late-breaking decision to extend a looming deadline for some. Open enrollment in the Affordable Care Act federal exchanges is set to end March 31, but the Department of Health and Human Services will let those who start the application process before that date have a bit more time to finish.

So, in essence what Reid is saying is that the overwhelming problems people are having with the ObamaCare web site is not as result of incompetence, ineptitude, myriad of technical issues people are experiencing at Healthcare.gov but that of stupid people who don't know how to use the internet.

He seems to have intellectual shortcomings more severe than what he claims about the American people.

Too bad that Reid can’t be educated to use common sense.

The only reason it was on the internet was so they can track you "personally", collect data on your assets and have access to you bank accounts.

Has absolutely nothing to do with healthcare. It's all about money.

Every six-year-old on Planet Earth knows how to use the Internet better than Reid.

If someone’s “unable to use the Internet” it’s becuse, in the case of the government website, the fr*ggin’ thing DOESN’T WORK!!!!

According to Reid people having problems with Obamacare are either total liars or too stupid to navigate a web site.

PSSST: Hey Harry, it isn’t about ‘not able to use the web’, it’s about saying NO to Obamacare. Like you didn’t know.....

As I said on another thread: I’ll place my internet skills against yours ANY DAY OF THE WEEK, Reid, you half-dead mortician-looking Pelosi-crazy mobbed-up reality-deprived whacked-out tyranny-coddling super-senile fraudulent intolerant America-hating petulant temper-tantrum-throwing waste of protons, neutrons, and electrons.

He’s right, you know. Except those idiots who don’t know how to use the Internet are obviously the ones working for healthcare.gov.

Does that mean if I want to file my taxes online, I can get an extension since people don’t know how to use the internet?

Reid, you and your corrupt clan are not educated on how to run government. Look at the mess you have created. How you ever got elected is beyond any intelligent reasoning.

My next-door neighbor is 91. She uses FB and knows how to upload pictures.

Reid is a lying POS.

Reid: “ ... people just “are not educated on how to use the Internet.”

Actually, Reid appears to be ignorant that a lot of people either figure the penalties are cheaper, can’t possibly afford the premiums at face value and detest the subsidies, or do not wish to risk their personal data & bank account on a site that is not secure.
