Assigned Reading: Health bills fail to block illegals from coverage
(FROM: The Washington Times)
Everyone remembers Joe Wilson’s (in)famous outburst. The Democrats were so busy censuring him for his bad manners that they managed to mostly distract people from the substance of his comment: Obama was lying.
Just in case anyone needs a convenient reminder to forward along to their friends, consider the lead-in of this Washington Times story:
Hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants could receive health care coverage from their employers under the bills winding their way through Congress, despite President Obama’s explicit pledge that illegal immigrants would not benefit.
Doesn’t get much simpler than that, does it?
The lies only work if they go unquestioned, and so it’s our responsibility to make sure that doesn’t happen.
