    Here's the actual explanation:



    The speech: What he said, what he meant - Carrie Budoff Brown - POLITICO.com

    The fact that your "Factcheck" article's author failed to pick up on the difference between "people" and "citizens" doesn't inspire much confidence in the rest of his claims.
    Actually, your girl's numbers are off. There are not 10 million uninsured illegal aliens, there are 9.3 million uninsured non-citizens per the Kaiser Commission referenced in the AP link, and of those, only 5.2 million are undocumented. The fact that your article's author failed to pick up on the difference b/w legal non-citizens and undocumented non-citizens doesn't inspire much confidence in the rest of her claims, does it?

    Health Coverage & the Uninsured: Profile of the Uninsured - Kaiser Family Foundation
    http://www.kff.org/uninsured/upload/7613.pdf


    Either way, the clarification was to cite only those citizens who cannot get insurance.

    To exclude undocumented non-citizens, as Right pointed out. And the lower number was to include only those who cannot get insurance now. And, it appears Obama was correct, there are 30 million citizens who cannot get insurance.

    Joe Wilson - Home
    For what, he he didn't do anjything wrong hell I wish more folks in Congress would stand up and yell back at the President when he makes these little speachs. It's called using his 1st Adm rights.

    I suggest you go back and read someof your History you will find this was very mild considering some of the stuff that have happen in the past in Congress.

    His comments were highly inappropriate in that setting regardless of any "feelings" he may have had.
    In that case, I think the matter has been ended but I think the GOP will suffer some further loss of support due to it.

    No....I think that many American voters, who have been confused by the lies the GOP & insurance giants have been vomiting all summer, now have a better understanding of what Obama's HC plan really is & will support it. This will increase Obama's approval rating & then these voters will then contact their elected reps & a real HC reform bill will finally be passed & signed into law by the end of this year.
