Sen. Ron Johnson says the Senate Majority Leader is "denying reality" when he says all the Obamacare horror stories are untrue, and he's demanded Reid apologize.

Appearing on Fox News Channel's "On the Record with Greta Van Susteren" Thursday, the Wisconsin Republican read letters he has received from constituents who detailed loss of plans or raised costs.

Reid took to the floor of the Senate on Wednesday saying all the claims made that Obamacare has caused harm are not true.

Republicans took offense to that, and Reid later amended his comments to say he was talking about political ads paid for by the Koch brothers, but he stuck by his claim that most claims are false.

"I don't know what parallel universe he lives in. I mean, certainly, people in Nevada must write him" with complaints about the Affordable Care Act, Van Susteren told Johnson.

"He's denying reality," Johnson said, "and he's trying to get the rest of America to deny reality so they can just plow forward with Obamacare, which is eventually going to lead to a single-payer system. That's always been their dream."

Johnson said Democratic senators need to start acting responsibly and repair the damage.

"They've got to stop turning a deaf ear to these pleas of the American public," Johnson said. "They talk about fixing it. There's nobody proposing any true fixes to Obamacare."
