By the end of the week, the house had admitted Wilson was right, and Obamaliar was in fact lying, by adding an amendment specifically stating that illegals were excluded from coverage.
This apparently did not sit will with the Liar In Chief. Read:

Here is Obamaliar in his own word:
"Even though I do not believe we can extend coverage to those who are here illegally, I also don't simply believe we can simply ignore the fact that our immigration system is broken," Mr. Obama said Wednesday evening in a speech to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute. "That's why I strongly support making sure folks who are here legally have access to affordable, quality health insurance under this plan, just like everybody else.
Mr. Obama added, "If anything, this debate underscores the necessity of passing comprehensive immigration reform and resolving the issue of 12 million undocumented people living and working in this country once and for all."
The fact of the matter is that Obama wants illegals covered. The White House for months has been referring to the "47 million in this country without health care", a number that includes 12 million illegals. When he looked into the camera in his speech last week and said: "illegals will not be covered", and Joe Wilson called him a liar for it, HE WAS LYING!
Of course, Obama never tells a bald faced lie without a cover. He learned this tactic from Bill The Philanderer Clinton. What Obama meant, though he didn't say it was: "Illegals will not be covered because we will legalize them before the public health care option goes into effect!"
Do you think it is unfair of me to add those words to Obama's quote? Maureen Dowd already set this precedent when she said Joe Wilson really meant to say "You lie, boy!" So if Dowd can do it then so can I.
The fact is that all you have to do is look at Obama's own words:
First: "Illegals will not be covered."
Second: "The necessity of passing comprehensive immigration reform and resolving the issue of 12 million undocumented people living and working in this country."
Could it be any clearer? You'd have to have your head buried in the sand not to understand what this is code for. Obama technically is not being untruthful, but he isn't telling the whole truth. When you piece it all together he wants amnesty for 12 million illegals, thereby giving them whatever universal health care congress is stupid enough to pass.
The bottomline: Obama wants coverage for 47 million uninsured people in this country, and if he has to give amnesty to the 12 million of that number that are here illegally to do it then that is what he is going to try.
