Reid to Keep Quiet Until Receiving WH Orders
On Wednesday, after the Obama administration released the abysmal enrollment numbers for the health insurance exchanges, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid announced that he would issue no comment until he had spoken with President Obama. Reid, the most ardent advocate of Obamacare and a belligerent opponent of changes to the law, said that he would hold a meeting on Thursday with to Democrats and senior White House officials to determine what to do next.
Reid told reporters that he spoke with President Obama Tuesday to talk about Obamacare. According to the White House, no bills will be signed that in any way allow Americans to keep the health insurance President Obama said they could keep dozens of times.
