He's against illegals getting health care now?

Wilson voted to provide federal funds for illegal immigrants’ healthcare. The vote came on the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement and Modernization Act of 2003, which contained Sec. 1011 authorizing $250,000 annually between 2003 and 2008 for government reimbursements to hospitals who provide treatment for uninsured illegal immigrants. The program has been extended through 2009 and there is currently a bipartisan bill in Congress to make it permanent.

  • Honestly, I think it's SICK. We're paying for CRIMINALS to get services at our hospitals, while in the mean time our own citizens are going BROKE just to pay their bills!!!!

  • Funny how that worked out, isn't it?!

    Wilson gets lambasted in the media and a resolution to censor him is tossed about. And while that is going on Democratic lawmakers quietly "edit" the bill to reflect what it is Wilson called Obama out in his "You lie" comment.

    I guess that's the key...call Obama a liar during a nationally televised event, and get what you want. I'll have to remember that! LOL

  • He is for giving blanket citizenship though, that pretty well fixes the illegal problem.

  • He is a Republican of the moment. When it favors his point of view and political format, he supports it. When it doesn't favor his format or point of view, he is against it. Just more (it never ends does it?) Republican hypocrisy.
