Reid contradicts Obama who said at a press conference that Obamacare was “80% implemented,” when in truth only the Obamacare “menu” has been created. Huge reality gap:
“Max said unless we implement this properly it’s going to be a train wreck and I agree with him,” Reid said, echoing a warning delivered last month by Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont.).
Reid warned the federal government is not spending enough money to implement the law because of Republican opposition to ObamaCare.
“Here’s what we have now, we have the menu but we don’t have any way to get to the menu,” Reid said.
Gee Harry, serious billions have already been spent. Pretty expensive ‘menu.’ Then he decided to chew on Obama some more:
“The president is taking money, I wish we had the money just to do this on its own but he’s agreed, he’s determined he’s going to take money from some of the other things that he feels are less important in the healthcare bill and put it on letting you and others know what’s in the bill,” Reid told a caller to the show.
Then he decided to just make up some data, or is pretty optimistic about adding 20 million illegals to the rolls soon:
“I believe that a country of our size, the only superpower left in the world — it’s not right that we have 50-60 million people … with no health insurance,” he said.
Good job, Harry. We’ll see you in 2014.
