A voice from the floor on illegal immigrants: 'You lie'

by Janet Crain

This is very telling that Barack Obama is not trusted, is not believed, is not respected as POTUS. And it is not our fault. We have been misled and our needs and wishes not met. Crooks and liars walk the floors of our nation's most hallowed government buildings. Crude, rude thugs czars are placed in power. We are told we must buy the new insurance or face fines of up to $3800. per family. This is not the American way.

One of the most persistent conservative concerns about health care legislation is that it will provide health care to illegal immigrants -- and the heated claim spilled onto the floor of President Obama's address to a joint session of Congress this evening, where one Republican member called the president a liar for denying it.

"There are also those who claim that our reform effort will insure illegal immigrants. This, too, is false - the reforms I'm proposing would not apply to those who are here illegally," President Obama said.

A loud voice from the Republican side of the hall answered, "You lie!" -- my colleague Glenn Thrush reports it was Rep. Joe Wilson (R - S.C.) -- drawing a second "It's not true," from Obama and a shake of Nancy Pelosi's head.
