Your President did lie last night:
For speaking out and telling the truth about Barack Obama last night, Congressman Joe Wilson has supposedly galvanized the liberal Democrat base while making himself a scorn to Obama's minions in the press and even his peers (idiot Claire McCaskill had the nerve to call Wilson a "jerk") in Congress. But what the Left fails to note is that is its Barack Obama who continues to lie to the American public while taking shots at those who dare oppose him, indeed Barry lied about the "death panels" language buried deep in his reform package too. Yet, Joe Wilson becomes the latest distraction for the tools on the Left to use, exploit and smear while they attempt to bully Americans into passing their radical left-wing, quasi-socialist agenda. Now, how convenient is that."The reforms I'm proposing would not apply to those who are
here illegally," PresidentObama said in acarefully worded statement
to a Joint Session of Congress and the American public last night.
The problem, notes the Federation for American Immigration
Reform (FAIR), is that the health care reforms proposed in H.R. 3200,
America's Affordable Health Care Act of 2009, clearly would benefit
"Perhaps the reforms that President Obama advocates would not cover
illegal aliens, but those are not the reforms currently under
consideration by Congress," commented Dan Stein, president of FAIR.
"H.R. 3200, the legislation that the House will be voting on, would
allow illegal aliens to benefit from the government-financed public
option, and includes no verification provisions to prevent illegal aliens
from receiving taxpayer subsidies to purchase private health insurance."
President Obama's assertion that illegal alien would not be covered
under AAHCA is directly contradicted by an August 25 report, Treatment
of Noncitizens in H.R. 3200, issued by the Congressional Research Service.
The nonpartisan research arm of Congress concluded, "H.R. 3200 does
not contain any restrictions on noncitizens - whether legally or illegal
present, or in the United States temporarily or permanently- participating
in the [Health Insurance] Exchange."
Once in the Exchange, participants are free to enroll in the government
run health insurance program. This public option, established under
H.R. 3200, would be heavily or entirely subsidized by the American
taxpayers. While illegal aliens are barred from receiving "affordability
credits" to help pay for private insurance, CRS noted the absence of any
mechanism in the bill to verify citizenship or legal residency.
"There is no reason why the controversy over whether illegal aliens
will be eligible for massive health care subsidies should persist," said Stein.
"The president, congressional leaders, and the public all agree they should
not. The authors of H.R. 3200 can easily remove the ambiguities from the
House bill, and Senate leaders caninclude specific language barring illegal
aliens from all nonemergency benefits in the bill that is being written
in that chamber.
"President Obama himself can also play an important role in seeing to it
that his wishes are carried out by publicly urging leaders of both houses
to include clear, unambiguous language in their legislation that would
preclude illegal aliens from coverage under his health care reform
proposal," Stein continued. "FAIR stands ready to work with the White
House and congressional leaders to develop legislative language that would make
sure that President Obama's pledge to the American people is fulfilled."
