You know, because he’s an idiot.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said after speaking with President Barack Obama on Tuesday that he is “very comfortable” that the administration will solve Obamacare’s problems.

Reid wouldn’t say whether or not he will consider any legislation that alters Obamacare until top White House officials come to a Thursday Senate Democratic caucus lunch to explain progress on the law’s disastrous rollout and its troubled website.

Reid was repeatedly pressed by reporters at a media availability on whether he will permit votes allowing people to keep their otherwise cancelled health care plans or other changes to the law — but the leader demurred.

“I’ll have more information after we have the meeting. But today I am not going to talk anymore about health care,” Reid said.
