Harry Reid Wants More Money To Implement Obamacare

By Susan Duclos

The phrase "people in hell want ice water" comes to mind when I read that Senate majority leader Harry Reid agrees with Max Baucus (D-Mont.) that Obamacare could be a "train wreck" without more money to implement it.

Not. Going. To. Happen.

Reid warned that people will not be able to choose health insurance plans on government health exchanges if federal authorities lack the resources to set them up and educate the public.

“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.

 Even Harry Reid cannot be ignorant enough to believe 1) that Republicans are going to feed that monster with any more of American taxpayer's money and 2) that pumping money into "education" is going to make Americans approve of Obamacare now that they "know what is in it."

Go read a WuA piece from this afternoon where RNC Research has documented quotes from multiple news reports about the rise in premiums, people being forced off the insurance plans they are already on, the harm to businesses due to Obamacare and much more.

Money cannot fix all the "bumps and glitches" in the Democrats' and Obama's monstrosity, appropriately called Obamacare.

Since Democrats refuse to repeal it, then Republicans must continue to starve it.
