Cassidy Implies Uninsured are Less Educated

Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-LA), the GOP front-runner to take on Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) this cycle, sought to clarify comments he made characterizing the uninsured as "relatively less sophisticated, less comfortable with forms, less educated," The Hill reports.

Cassidy noted the involved sign-up process for Obamacare was inaccessible for those who need the most help.

Said Cassidy: "They're illiterate. I'm not saying that to be mean; I say that in compassion. They cannot read. The idea that they're going to go on the internet and work through a 16-page document to put in their data and sign up does not reflect an understanding of who is having the hardest time in our economy."
