(CNSNews.com) – When asked by CNSNews.com whether he has read all 10,535 pages of final Obamacare regulations published so far in the Federal Register, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) would not answer.

CNSNews.com asked Reid the question as he returned to the Senate floor after he and other Democrats held a press conference on the east steps of the Capitol.

CNSNews.com asked: “Sen. Reid, the Obama administration has published 10,535 pages of federal regulations for Obamacare. Have you read all of those, sir?"

Reid was silent.

CNSNews.com asked: “Senator Reid, will you answer that yes or no question?”

Reid did not respond.

CNSNews.com later sent several emails to Reid's communications director repeating the question of whether Reid had read the 10,535 pages of final Obamacare regulations that the administration has thus far published. He did not respond. According to the voice mail recording at Reid's office, Reid's staff is not checking voice mails or emails.
