During a press conference on Wednesday, one that was supposed to be about immigration reform, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) found himself defending the Obama administration’s extension of the Obamacare enrollment deadline.
Reid, whose behavior in recent weeks is odd even for him, told reporters that reason the administration extended the enrollment deadline past March 31 is because Americans don’t know how to use the Internet:
“No, it’s through no fault of the Internet, because people are not educated on how to use the Internet,” Reid said.
Reid referenced a story he heard on the radio, in which a 63-year-old woman in Connecticut was able to sign up for the law in person at one of two locations set up by the state. The woman said she was nearly successful at signing up on healthcare.gov, but the system cut her off at the end.
“We have a lot of people just like this,” Reid said.
