Harry Reid: People Arenít Educated on How to Use the Internet
The Washington Free Beacon ^

Posted on 03/26/2014 10:39:12 AM PDT by don-o

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) said the fault of 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.”

It’s just the latest strange moment for the embattled Reid,

i see harry has learned from great christian charlatan faith healers - if you can’t sign up for obamacare, it’s because it’s YOUR fault, not the website.

blame the gullible victim. insult, meet injury.

Filing taxes is roughly 100 times more complicated than using a website and answering some questions (assuming said website actually, you know, works). Are we going to extend the tax due date past April 15 because of that?

How crazy old dude Reid gets his internets.

*Cant wait to see how all of the left-wing websites hammer him on this. I'm sure It'll be a looooong wait though.

It would be a hoot if some Republicans senator called EMS and said to come to the senate floor; Harry Reid is having an emotional breakdown. Then put on the experts to give their opinion on Reid’s diseased jbrain.

This must be the new talking point for the administration: Blame the people you are trying to sell your crap to. First it was Biden and now Reid.

Harry, Harry, you poor sicko. The psychological term for your illness is called transference. Because YOU don’t understand the Net, you transfer your ignorance to the public at large.
FYI, My mother age 80 something and my grandniece age 2 something both probably use the Internet better than Harry Reid.

In Godfather II, Michael C. comes to the aid of a Nevada Senator who is found with a dead hooker. I’ve heard that refers to an incident in young HR’s career.

What makes this even stupider than it seems on the surface (if that's possible) is that they people they need to be signing up are the young "invincibles", who are supposed to be glad to pay way more than they can afford to subsidize the higher-risk people in the pool. And that demographic were essentially born with a keyboard in their fists.
