Here is something you don’t see or hear every day … Member in Congress calls Barack Obama a liar when “The One” says that his healthcare system will not cover illegal immigrants.
The reforms I am proposing would not apply to those who are here illegally. You lie!
The culprit was South Carolina rep Joe Wilson, who felt moved to act when The One told what was, in fact, a lie. Although certainly not his biggest of the night: Where this jackass gets off lecturing Americans on civility after his cretinous cronies spent a month demagoging the hell out of every protester in sight is beyond me. You’re Mr. Clean, aren’t you, champ? And bottom-feeders like Harry Reid are your hatchet men. Nice work if you can get it.
UPDATE II: The Gateway Pundit brings up this little tid-bit that shows HR3200 doesn’t require people to establish citizenship or legal residency before applying to exchanges for health insurance.
While Barack Obama insists that the idea that ObamaCare will cover illegal immigrants is a “myth,” the CRS points out that the bill does nothing to prevent it. Since HR3200 doesn’t require people to establish citizenship or legal residency before applying to exchanges for health insurance, including the public option, taxpayer money will certainly flow to illegal immigrants.
To bad that the comments of “We the People” at Town Hall meetings did not turn the heads of Obama, Biden and Pelosi
One would think though that individuals could have yelled liar at several parts of the Presidents speech tonight. Folks, since when does this administration get anything right when it comes to cost? They could not figure out the cash for clunkers program correctly, do you really think that insuring 47 million, now tonight down to 30 million will cost $900 billion? Go fish.
Next Obama says that you will not lose your health insurance with his Obamacare plan. Wrong. Presently HR3200, (149–150), states that an employer can pay an 8% penalty and transfer their employee to the government run public option. If an employer presently pays more than 8% for your insurance coverage, do you honestly think that you will not be switched for bottom line business purposes?
UPDATE I: Before Democrats get all high and mighty and insulted by Obama being called a liar, Democrats pulled this stunt with GWB as well.

UPDATE II: I Think Democrats dost Protest too Much
Since Barack Obama has become President the MSM has acted like there has never been a President ever elected before him and that there has never been down and dirty partisan bickering and politics. The MSM acts as if Democrats have never name called, acted rudely or called Republican Presidents names. Obama, you are not special and you are no different than George W. Bush.
As The Astute Blogger aptly stated, Heckle Obama and you are a racist; Heckle Bush and you are cool with the MSM.
