PRESIDENT HECKLED BY GOP CONGRESSMAN OVER BOGUS CLAIM THAT ILLEGALLY PRESENT IMMIGRANTS WILL BE COVERED IN IN HEALTH CARE BILL

Rate this Entry
There has been an interesting alliance of antis in both the health care and immigration arenas to scare people in to believing that illegally present immigrants will be eligible for subsidies to secure health insurance under the health care reform proposal being pushed by President Obama. That claim is patently false. But that did not stop one extremist in the Congress, Representative Joe Wilson (R-SC) from screaming "You lie!" when President Obama addressed that myth. This appalling lack of respect has already led the GOP to go in to damage control mode and Wilson issued an apology within minutes of the President's speech ending. The apology was really one of those non-apology apologies where he didn't apologize for making a false claim, just for the outburst.

    He represents his white racist constituents very well. I dont know why anyone, epsecially Greg, is surprised by this extremist. They are from South Carolina, remember. There is a story floating around in Colombia, SC (whether just a rumor or reality, I really do not know) that Nikki Haley who is running for governor tried to pass for white with her white husband and tried to enter an all white Forest Hills country club and her coverage was blown. By the way Nikki's folks are from India and they come from the part of the country where some folks look plain white. I agree there are exceptions such as Lindsay Graham..but they comprise of a very few southern whites in South Carolina, most of whom have one racist bias or the other! Remember, it is the home to Bob Jones University.

    What do you expect from Joe Wilson, when he represents this district on the Georgia border..except for Hilton Head, mostly racist redneck towns on the Georgia-SC border, trying to preserve their way of life and wave confederate flags.

    A lot of his constituents, I bet you anything also belong to the racist Council of Conservative Citizens! For the sake of decency I wont attach their link!

    Still does not say that taxpayers will be subsidizing illegals. Anyone will be allowed to buy anything they want.
