    Americans should be applauding Joe Wilson's outburst. Wilson--did expose section 1702 of HR3200 under expanded Medicade benefits--THAT RESTRICTS INQUIRIES ABOUT IMMIGRATION STATUS.

    http://www.desertconservative.com/2009/08/28/hr3200-and-illegal-immigrantsamerica-being-snookered/

    Obama chose his words with great care. Section 246 of the bill — dealing solely with insurance subsidies — states: “Nothing in this subtitle shall allow Federal payments for affordability credits on behalf of individuals who are not lawfully present in the United States.”

    The House bill not only makes a major expansion of Medicaid eligibility but also restricts (in Section 1702) inquiries about immigration status. Efforts to fix this and to add enforcement provisions to HR 3200 were offered in the Ways & Means Committee by Rep. Dean Heller (R-Nev.) and in the Energy & Commerce Committee by Rep. Nathan Deal (R-Ga.), but voted down. No Democrats supported Heller. Blue Dog Representatives Mike Ross (D-Ark.), Jim Matheson (D-Utah), Charles Melancon (D-La.), John Barrow (D-Ga.), and Baron Hill (D-Ind.) voted for the Deal proposal. This is why Joe Wilson lost it & called Obama a liar.

    While the DNC is after Joe Wilson--it's very interesting to note that the senate gang of 6--a bipartisan group immediately added stricker language to section 1702 of HR3200. "After" Joe Wilson's outburst.

    Blue Dog Reps? :lol:

    They're still Democrats you dope.

    Also, to call the Gang of 6 a bipartisan group is a joke. Two of the Republicans are on the take for the Insurance companies. One of those two straight out says he is trying to block a bill and get everything taken out. Then you have Baucus who is on the Health Care Lobby's payroll ($4 million over the past five years or so.) So that's Three of the Six right there. Then you have Olympia Snowe who is one of the best Republicans left in Congress. Along with the two other Democrats who seem to be a bit wishy washy.

    CNN's Joe Johns apparently decided that their viewers didn't need to know just how much money has been raised for Rep. Joe Wilson's opponent for his House seat in 2010 during this segment from AC360. While it is true that Rob Miller raised $200,000 overnight, at the time this segment aired, Miller was already right about at the half million mark, and it's now pushing $700,000 and rising.

    If he hits a million in a day or two maybe these guys will be forced to finally report it.

    If you'd like to help that happen you can donate to Rob Miller here.

    UDATE: It's now over $800,000 and counting and some numbers from Act Blue.

    * First post-Wilson contribution came in at 9:31 on 09.09.09
    * In the 27 hours following he raised ~675k from ~18k donors
    * In 27 hours he eclipsed the 48-hour high water mark for a single candidate (incl. Prez/Sen) on ActBlue
    * Nearest apples-to-apples thing is Tinklenberg post-Bachmann. Over that post-Hardball evening and the day after Tinklenberg raised 240k.
    * For almost 3 hours yesterday he was raising $1k/minute
    * Total 9-09 to 9-10 haul represents $7/second over that period.
    * Avg contribution: $36
    * Median contribution: $25

    UPDATE II: Rob Miller just passed the $1 million mark

    I guess you're another one of the Obama sheeple squad that was so stunned by perfectly pronounced speeches--staged lighting & greek columns--that you don't know how to click on links--much less read. Stick your thumb in your mouth--go to bed & enjoy the stupidity--:lol:

    YOU LIE!
    You are also PROJECTING.

    I did click on your link and observed that there was no pull quote from section 1702 which is an immediate Red Flag to the Cynical mind. So I took the time to READ section 1702 for myself and there is absolutely nothing there that restricts inquires about immigration status.

    Prove me wrong and quote the actual "RESTRICTION' words from the bill.

    So it is you sheepishly parroting a lie you like without ever verifying it.

    There is a time and place for everything, and the president's speech to congress was not the place and it was disrespectul and rude and ignorant.
    He should be forced to resign. This has never happen before in history of president's speech. Racist raving.
    The point was not that he was right. Others felt the same way and is fine in a health care debate but this was not a debate.
    He would not have done this to a white president.

    What the President said was that his reforms did not apply to illegal aliens. He was right.

    To wit:

    Treatment of Noncitizens in H.R. 3200
    August 25, 2009

    This report outlines the treatment of noncitizens (aliens) under H.R. 3200, America's Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009. In particular, the report analyzes specific provisions in H.R. 3200, and whether there are eligibility requirements for noncitizens in the provisions. Within the bill, noncitizens are treated differently in several provisions. In 2008, there were approximately 37.3 million foreign-born persons in the United States. The foreign-born population was comprised of approximately 15.1 million naturalized U.S. citizens and 22.2 million noncitizens. H.R. 3200 includes an individual mandate to have health insurance, with tax penalties for noncompliance. Individuals who do not maintain acceptable health insurance coverage for themselves and their children would be required to pay an additional tax. Some individuals, including nonresident aliens, would be exempt from the individual mandate. fiNonresident alienfl is a term under tax but not immigration law. For federal tax purposes, alien individuals are classified as resident or nonresident aliens. In general, an individual is a nonresident alien unless he or she meets the qualifications under a residency test. Thus, legal permanent residents, and noncitizens and unauthorized aliens who qualify as resident aliens (i.e., meet the substantial presence test), would be required under H.R. 3200 to have health insurance. In addition, under H.R. 3200, a fiHealth Insurance Exchangefl would begin operation in 2013 and would offer private plans alongside a public option. The Exchange would provide eligible individuals and small businesses with access to insurers™ plans, including the public option, in a comparable way. Individuals would only be eligible to enroll in an Exchange plan if they were not enrolled in other acceptable coverage (for example, from an employer, Medicare and generally Medicaid). H.R. 3200 does not contain any restrictions on noncitzens participating in the ExchangeŠwhether the noncitizens are legally or illegally present, or in the United States temporarily or permanently. Nonetheless, only aliens who could be classified as resident aliens would be required under the bill to have health insurance. In 2013, under H.R. 3200, some individuals would be eligible for premium credits (i.e., subsidies based on income) toward their required purchase of health insurance.

    To be eligible for the premium credits under H.R. 3200, individuals must be lawfully present in a state in the United States, excluding most nonimmigrants
    (i.e., those in the United States for a specific purpose and a specific period of time). The exceptions for nonimmigrants who could obtain premium credits under H.R. 3200 would be trafficking victims, crime victims, fiancées of U.S. citizens, and those who have had applications for legal permanent residence (LPR) status pending for three years. It is expected that almost all aliens in these excepted nonimmigrant categories will become LPRs (i.e., immigrants) and remain in the United States permanently.

    Furthermore, unauthorized aliens would be barred from receiving the premium credit. H.R. 3200 as reported from the House Energy and Commerce Committee (E&C) would extend Medicaid eligibility up to 133 1/3% of poverty for populations that previously were not covered (e.g., childless adults and many parents).

    This extension of benefits could mean an increase in the number of noncitizens who already meet the immigration status requirements for Medicaid eligibility who would be eligible for Medicaid. Also, H.R. 3200 as reported by E & C would make eligible for full Medicaid noncitizens who lawfully reside in the United States in accordance with the Compacts of Free Association between the Government of the United States and the Governments of the Federated States of Micronesia, the Republic of the Marshall Islands, and the Republic of Palau, and are otherwise eligible for such assistance. This report will be updated.

    It does NOT state that it applies to ILLEGALS. Not only that, it says it would apply only to those LAWFULLY here.

    No, Mr. Wilson -
