Why is Obamacare such a miserable failure? According to Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid, it is because the American people aren’t smart enough to properly use the Obamacare exchanges.
The always quotable Mr. Reid says that you …
“are not educated on how to use the Internet.”
Taking a page from the Blamer-in-chief, he proclaims that the problem isn’t the system, it is you:
“We have hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up and they 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. … 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.”
Did you catch that bit toward the end? When someone gets kicked out of the system, as happened repeatedly to my 32 year old son who lives on the internet in his business, it’s not the system, it’s the user.
It’s us stupid Americans who are the problem.
Stepping back and assessing the results of the Obamacare rollout, I’m not sure the evidence supports Mr. Reid.
I think the Brianiacs who designed Obamacare are a little bit more of the problem than us dumb, old Americans.
But I could be wrong.
