N.C. Republican Rep.-turned-heckler Joe Wilson who loudly yelled "You lie!" after the president said health care reform wouldn't cover illegal immigrants. The moment threw Obama off track, if briefly. Michelle Obama was reported to have shaken her head in dismay from her seat.Wilson quickly apologized in a statement to CNN, saying, "I let my emotions get the best of me
You can't simply be a LIAR and then apologize and all is forgiven. Joe Wilson is a Liar and should be voted out by North Carolina for being the liar that he isl.

Women (Nasty or otherwise) are going to be the reason that Donald Trump is NEVER President!
FACT CHECK: Absolutely False - Illegal Immigrants Will NOT Get Free Coverage.
“Pants on Fire” From PolitiFact.com. This one gets another “pants on fire” rating from Politifact.com. FactCheck.org confirms there will be “no federal subsidies for you if you’re in the country illegally.” The independent organization goes on to note that “illegal immigrants aren’t eligible for federal health programs under current law.” [Politifact.com, 7/28/09; FactCheck.org, 7/23/09]
Both House and Senate Health Insurance Reform Explicitly Ban Coverage for Illegal Immigrants. Page 143 of the House bill explicitly prohibits federal payments for “undocumented aliens.” Specifically, the bill states, “Nothing in this subtitle shall allow Federal payments for affordability credits on behalf of individuals who are not lawfully present in the United States.” Page 111 of the HELP bill defines those who are eligible for premium credits as “a citizen or national of the United States or an alien lawfully admitted to the United States for permanent residence or an alien lawfully present in the United States.” [H.R. 3200; Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions bill]
Yes, it is wrong. Republicans need to quit lying.
"The CRS analysis comes after weeks of denials by Members of Congress that illegal aliens could receive benefits under the House bill. These denials were echoed by countless media and health care "experts" who dismissed public concerns as myths, or as politically orchestrated attacks.
"Case closed. Illegal aliens will be eligible to participate in the health care program offered by the House bill unless Congress acts to amend the bill," stated Dan Stein, president of FAIR. "The loopholes and omissions in the House bill are not there by accident," continued Stein. "These loopholes were intended to extend benefits to illegal aliens while allowing Members of Congress to deny those facts to the American people.""
Maybe we are all just using different definitions for the same words.
