Harry Reid: If You Can’t Get Through to HealthCare.Gov, It’s Because You’re Not Educated on Using the Internet
No more blaming the Obama administration officials who made the bad decisions, or even the contractors who built the Web site. No, America: if you can’t get through, it’s your own fault:
J.D. told us last night about the latest blown deadline: basically, the world is getting an extension on signing up. Why? Because the Web site was messed up for months? No. A press conference was called to explain. After talking up the virtues of setting up brick and mortar stores for people to sign up when they have been unablel to get through online, Harry Reid delivered this garbled gem:
These people need a little extra time. It’s not, the example they gave is a 63-year-old woman came into the store and she said: “I almost got it. But 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, because people are not educated on how to use the Internet.
Stupid Americans. Please get educated on how to deal with a federal monstrosity of a Web site, will you? We’re giving you one last chance. Try not to screw it up this time.
