“Reid Defends Obamacare Delay: ‘People Are Not Educated about How to use the Internet’”
Like, for instance, those who put together the Obamacare site, you mean? Or is that just too easy a one liner?
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is at it again in his strident defense of Obamacare.
Attempting to excuse the Obama Administration’s latest delay of the sign-up deadline, Reid blamed Americans who, in the 21st century, still don’t know what this Internet thing is all about.
It is one of life’s monstrous ironies that we’ve turned over a government based around the idea of consent of the governed to cynical, craven, power-mad people who hold those they govern in such obvious contempt. We’ve gone from a government of virtue and the citizen legislator right back to a kind of entrenched inbred aristocracy.
It doesn’t have to be that way, of course. And yet.
To borrow from the late Kurt Vonnegut: “So it goes. So it goes.”
Until it doesn’t.
