Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said yesterday he agrees with Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., that Obamacare will be a “huge train wreck” if the administration doesn’t change the way it’s implementing the law. Reid made the comments during a radio interview on the Rusty Humphries Show.

“Did you draft any of the bill, the 2,700 pages, and did you read it, and what do you think of Max Baucus calling it a train wreck?” asked caller J.D. from Nevada.

“He’s talking about Obamacare, I’m guessing. Go ahead,” said host Rusty Humphries.

“Of course I read it. I didn’t sit down in a Friday evening and read it, you know,” said Reid. “This legislation was drafted over a period of months and months. It took a long time to get it done. So I can pass a test on it, I know the law pretty well. But Max Baucus, Max is my friend, he decided not to run for reelection, that’s too bad. But he’s been there for 34 years in the Senate, and he spent 6 or 8 years in the House.”

“Max said unless we implement this properly it’s going to be a train wreck, and I agree with him,” Reid added.
