Reid’s New Defense of ObamaCare: People Not ‘Educated on How to Use the Internet’

‘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’

Harry Reid: People Aren’t Educated on How to Use the Internet (Washington Free Beacon)

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) said the fault of people struggling to sign up on the Obamacare exchanges didn’t lie with the faulty website, but with the people who weren’t “educated on how to use the Internet.”

Explaining the reasoning behind the latest Obamacare delay, Reid said too many people just didn’t know to use their computer properly and needed more time. Apparently, it had nothing to do with the well-documented failings of the website that have embarrassed the White House for months.

“We have hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up who didn’t get through,” he said. “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.”
