    Rep. Wilson Outburst Leads Senate Dems to Close Loophole in Health Reform Bill

    Rep. Wilson Outburst Leads Senate Dems to Close Loophole in Health Reform Bill - Political News - FOXNews.com


    Rep. Wilson Outburst Leads Senate Dems to Close Loophole in Health Reform Bill
    In the Senate, Democrats in the so called "Gang of Six," began moving quickly to close the loophole Rep. Joe Wilson helped bring to light with his outburst during President Obama's address to a joint session of Congress on Wednesday night.

    So it seems that Mr. Wilson was correct and that Mr. Obama was lieing threw his teeth when he said that no Illegal Allians would be covered. So does this mean that Mr. Obama is going ot Apologies to the nation for Lieing.

    From the Article,

    Among three House committees to pass bills for health reform, only one expressly bans federal funding for proving health coverage to illegal immigrants.

    "The Congressional Research Service has indicated that indeed the bills that are before Congress would include illegal aliens," Wilson said. "And I think this is wrong."

    Indeed, the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service study found that the House health care bill does not restrict illegal immigrants from receiving health care coverage.

    House Republican Minority Leader John Boehner amplified the complaint that without proof of citizenship, illegal immigrants could be insured.

    "There were two opportunities for House Democrats to make clear that illegal immigrants wouldn't be covered by putting in requirements to show citizenships," he said. "Both of those amendments were, in fact, rejected."


    So here it is folks Mr. Obama lied to the American People now lets here the call for him to explain why he lied.

    Joe Wilson is going to go down the same historical road as Joe McCarthy: A great American that got a bum rep for doing what he had to do to protect his country.

    We can't allow the same injustice happen this time.

    Joseph McCarthy did what he had to do to protect his country?

    "I have here in my hand a list of two hundred and five people that were known to the Secretary of State as being members of the Communist Party
    and who nevertheless are still working and shaping the policy of the State Department." Senator Joseph McCarthy

    He got his bum rep for making reckless and unsubstantiated claims about his political opponents.

    Wilson is a child and should be treated as one.
    It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.

    A political witch hunt was necessary to protect the country? Subpoenaing anyone who criticized McCarthy or the hearings was necessary to protect the country? Don't be ridiculous. McCarthy was a demagogue, plain and simple. He was nothing more than a right-wing Hugo Chavez.

    whether or not obama was lying is irrelevant. when the president is making a speech you are to be respectful, whether you agree with what he is saying or not. it's not some kind of school assembly where everyone is quietly laughing at the principal and the class clown decides to act out.

    Joe McCarthy's work uncovered the Rosenbergs, so don't say he did nothing to protect the country.

    The members of the government that he exposed as communists, were communists. You need to read about Pumpkin Papers that exposed Alger Hiss.

    Joe McCarthy was a great American who willingly sacrificed his life and reputation in defense of this nation.

    Please show me in the US Constitution were it states when the President of the United States is giving a speech to Congress that Congress needs to be quite. Shall I bring up the Feb. 2 2005 State of Union Speech were the Democrates boo Mr. W Bush not once but many times.
