Skip to comments.Harry Reid: People Arenít Educated on How to Use the Internet
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 didnt lie with the faulty website, but with the people who werent educated on how to use the Internet.
Explaining the reasoning behind the latest Obamacare delay, Reid said too many people just didnt 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 didnt 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. Its 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.
Its just the latest strange moment for the embattled Reid,

First we were too old, now we’re too stupid.
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.
Harry’s counting down the days until he’s no longer majority leader..
Reid should talk to the morons who voted for him..all it took was a best buy gift card from his campaign staff, that easy
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?
Harry Reid is a pedophile.
Or so I heard on Glenn Beck one day.
All Gore invented it ya know
please....we’re not talking about 65 and up folks. and there’s plenty of help around.
Maybe a whole lot of people are too smart to eat a sheet sandwich Harry!
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.
Does Harry need a staffer to access his e-mail for him?
Bitterly clinging to your guns, bibles and heart pills.
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.
That’s a howler. They don’t know what else to do or say.
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.
Do you also write for the WFB?
HALP US JON CARRY - WE R STUK HEAR N IRAK
I worked with sex offenders who had been through treatment. One thing they learned was that sex offenders speak softly ( like Reid); but not all people who speak softly are sex offenders.
Ignorance about the internet is shown in those who think it takes more than half billion dollars to build such a website.
I used http://ehealthinsurance.com to buy an HSA in 2006. Too bad that technology has been lost.
Harry the Red doesn’t need to test his knowledge of the Internet on the obamaCare websits — he’s exempted himself.
OMG, the milennials know how to use the internet.
I do like it when he insults them though. Maybe they can see who the democrats are.
I doubt it though.
It’s like a series of tubes...
That would be a fun test. Let’s grab a random uninsured 27-year-old and have him and Reid both try to sign up for a policy on Healthcre.gov at the same time, and see who can get done first (assuming either can at all).
Jon Carry served in Vietnam. In case you’ve forgotten. I think his tour of duty lasted about one day, the day he won 3 Purple Hearts.
If only Gore had designed the internet to be more user-friendly.
In Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, Caesar says, “The fault lies in ourselves, not in our stars, that we are underlings.”
Translation to Harry R. “Look in the mirror, dumkauf.”
Must be Harry doesn’t check those Internets much himself, otherwise He’d know there are plenty of middle aged to older people posting some real pointed comments to his facebook page.
How much will knowledge and experience help you when you click on a button and nothing happens, or you get an error message?
How much will knowledge and experience help you when you fill out a series of forms and discover that everything you typed in has disappeared?
How much will knowledge and experience help you when the website tells you that you are enrolled, but the insurance company knows nothing about it?
America Online, isn’t that where everyone gets their Email?
Excellent. I'll use this line on my Tax Return to see if the IRS will accept it.
Harry ends up at a porn site every time he googles “Cow boy poetry”
Some people just don’t have the mental capacity to use the internet. Most are democrat voters.
easy.. set your home page to The Drudge Report and make a favorites link to Free Republic and you have just about everything you need on the internet :)
“It’s a poor workman who blames his tools.” Harry Reid is a tool.
Aren’t there some white-coated gentlemen waiting to take this guy back to the bug-house?
Her statement to moms was: Tell him he could get hurt in a car accident. What a rotten thing to say.
The entire Democrap Party is ‘Stuck on Stupid’.......................
I guarantee this senile fossil has never even personally typed an e-mail nor logged in at any website. He has minions to handle those messy things for him.
So they know how to sign up for FB but cannot navigate a Gov Web Site! Come on Harry!
Harry - you are not educated enough to run the country. Just look at the mess we are in. Thanks to you and the rest of your corrupt clan.
Every American born in the last 25 years knows how to use the Internet.
Perhaps Harry is letting his inner selfie be projected................
Reid is right. Parents need to get instructions from their 4 year old children on how to use the Internet.
This along the lines of the 2000 election’s “Democrats are too stupid to vote” line his party was peddling.
Harry is becoming a greater embarrassment to the RATS every day. They cringe every time this senile codger opens his oatmeal hole. Keep insulting the taxpayers, Harry!
Hey, does anybody have Joke Biden’s “email number”?
