Joe Wilson Continues to Lie
"On these issues, I will not be muzzled. I will speak up, and speak loudly, against this risky plan," Wilson proclaims. "The supporters of the government takeover of health care, and the liberals who want to give health care to illegals, are using my opposition as an excuse to distract from the critical questions being raised about this poorly-conceived plan. they want to silence anyone who speaks out against it. They made it clear they want to defeat me, and pass the plan."
He goes on to threaten that Health Care Reform will kill people.
"Health care is a matter of life and death for so many," he later adds. "I choose life, with health-insurance reform."
Oh and by the way Joe Wilson is also a hypocrite as well since he voted to spend federal money to cover health costs for illegal aliens in 2003. He voted for the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement and Modernization Act. This legislation had a section 1011 which authorized $250,000 annually between 2003 and 2008 for government reimbursements to hospitals who provide treatment for uninsured illegal immigrants.

So why does he lie so passionatly about health care reform? Well a quick glance at his list of campaign donors from Hospitals, Health Care and Insurance Companies may have something to do with it.
Our country has had many great leaders over its 200 plus years, the batch of RepubLIEcans now in congress is an embarrassment to the legacy of their party and our nation. As long as people like Joe Wilson are the face and voice of the Republican Party, The majority of Americans will continue to reject them.
