How do you silence a room full of big mouth Congresspersons? Tell the truth.
And that’s just what happened Wednesday evening when Rep Joe Wilson did what we’ve all wanted to do for months – shout in Mr. Obama’s face – “You Lie!” Look around for minute. How many people do you know who would beg for the opportunity to tell the President to his face – You Lie!
Let’s start with the Obama claim that precipitated Rep. Joe Wilson’s outburst – “we will not be insuring illegal immigrants.” Liberty Counsel, a nationwide public interest religious civil liberties law firm, went through the 1200+ page bill and thoughtfully provided the American people an analysis – because it was too much work for members of Congress to read it themselves.

According to the Liberty Counsel lawyers, Sec. 152, Pg. 50-51 – specifies that health care will be provided to all non-US citizens. Here’s what it says; (a) IN GENERAL.—Except as otherwise explicitly permitted by this Act and by subsequent regulations consistent with this Act, all health care and related services (including insurance coverage and public health activities) covered by this Act shall be provided without regard to personal characteristics extraneous to the provision of high quality health care or related services.
Behind the obtuse language adopted by politicians for the express purpose of hiding their true intentions; we can easily see how this law will be interpreted to provide health care to all – including non-resident aliens, illegal or not. How will the government accomplish this when their plan is to issue a national ID card? Simple – they’ll just amnesty illegal aliens and give them all cards. It’s semantic but adds up to the same outcome.
Here’s another example. Sec. 59B, Pg. 167-168, says; “In the case of any individual who does not meet the requirements of subsection (d) at any time during the taxable year, there is hereby imposed a tax equal to 2.5 percent of the excess of ‘‘(1) the taxpayer’s modified adjusted gross income for the taxable year, over ‘‘(2) the amount of gross income specified in section 6012(a)(1) with respect to the taxpayer. (All income information will be helpfully provided by the IRS) In other words, Americans will be forced to show proof of medical insurance or pay a big tax.
On pg 170; the bill says: ‘‘(2) NONRESIDENT ALIENS.—Subsection (a) shall not apply to any individual who is a nonresident alien.” In other words, by combining both parts of Sec 152 and Sec 59B, you see that nonresident aliens get medical coverage while they’re here and they’re not subject to any taxes for it.
Rep. Joe Wilson reflected the frustration of the American people when in exasperation, he called Mr. Obama a liar. After listening to an endless litany of contradictions to the government’s own health care bill from government staffers and the President, people are undoubtedly beyond suspicious. Many citizens are ready to implement Change That We Need in Congress and the Senate. And later – the Presidency.
There are a whole host of additional lies about government health care that are being revealed daily by credible investigators outside the mouthpiece, state-run media. Stay tuned. The outrage over government hijacking of the health care industry is just beginning. Wait till they try to sneak it through behind your back.
