    In 2003, Wilson voted for the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act, including its Section 1011 authorizing $250,000 annually of taxpayer money to reimburse hospitals for treatment of illegal immigrants.




    Joe Wilson Voted to Provide Taxpayer Money for Illegal Immigrants' Healthcare

    September 11, 2009 - by Donny Shaw

    On Wednesday night, Rep. Joe Wilson [R, SC-2], shouted “You lie!” at President Obama when he said that the healthcare bill would not cover illegal immigrants. “The supporters of the government takeover of healthcare and liberals who want to give healthcare to illegals are using my opposition as an excuse to distract from the critical questions being raised about this poorly conceived plan,” Wilson said the next day in a campaign fundraising video.

    However, in 2003, 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.

    Hospitals have a legal obligation to treat everyone who comes in seeking care, regardless of citizenship status, insurance or other characteristics. This means that hospitals treat millions of people every year who don’t have the means to pay. Obviously, this drives up the nation’s healthcare costs overall. Section 1011 helps cushion the costs for hospitals, but it’s not nearly enough to cover the actual costs in most areas.

    To be fair, Section 1011 is just a small part of a much larger bill that contained many Republican priorities. Still, Wilson’s protest against the current healthcare reform proposal giving coverage to illegal immigrants (which is false), is in direct contradiction to his 2003 vote. Allowing illegal immigrants to purchase unsubsidized healthcare through the Exchange that would be set up under the current proposal wouldn’t cost taxpayers a cent, and it would be a step towards fixing the problem that Section 1011 was designed to throw federal money at.

    Here are a few more links on Wilson and the healthcare reform bill:

    Republicans say all the time fuck illegals! But they accept big bucks from businesses that rely on illegals. Therefore, on the surface they say fuck illegal, but on the ground they do nothing and in fact protect most businesses. After all the big businesses pay the reelection bills! Repeat after me Republicans, while the border would be secured (I fully support a barrier) the most effective way to stop illegals is to cut of the incentive: (1) JOBS , (2) Free healthcare (at least treat them and then immediate arrest and deport them, (3) free education, (4) ability to rent homes or apartments and (5) ability to get credit such as mortgage, auto loans or credit cards!

    Democrats come right out and say we support you little guys, because that leads to direct votes! Both way suck!

    the fact that the man voted for something in 2003 doesn't negate the fact that obama lied. obama lied, it's just that simple.

    Well, WILSON does get great gobs of money from med/pharma/NON-insurers (you know, the ones who TAKE YOUR MONEY FOR YEARS AND THEN CANCEL YOU WHEN YOU MAKE A CLAIM!!!!!!)

    And WILSON is a liar, a hypocrite, and a racist (and not about Obama, but about Thurmond's daughter,) and judging by the picture, is eating plenty of hog!!!!!

    Wilson = LIAR/Hypocrite Wilson = LIAR/Hypocrite Wilson = LIAR/Hypocrite Wilson = LIAR/Hypocrite Wilson = LIAR/Hypocrite Wilson = LIAR/Hypocrite Wilson = LIAR/Hypocrite Wilson = LIAR/Hypocrite Wilson = LIAR/Hypocrite Wilson = LIAR/Hypocrite Wilson = LIAR/Hypocrite Wilson = LIAR/Hypocrite Wilson = LIAR/Hypocrite Wilson = LIAR/Hypocrite Wilson = LIAR/Hypocrite
