Joe Wilson Vindicated In 2009 Shout Of 'You Lie' At Barack Obama

Some might remember when Republican Representative Joe Wilson shouted out the words "You Lie" at Barack Obama in 2009 in the middle of Obama's national address when Obama claimed that his Obamacare would not cover illegal immigrants.

Well, recent facts vindicate Joe Wilson.

But Wilson is claiming some vindication after the Health and Human Services Department awarded millions to "migrant and seasonal farm worker" health care -- a spokeswoman in the department was cited last week saying patients would not be asked about immigration status and a department official confirmed Monday that the centers receiving the grant money must offer primary care to "all residents" in a given area.

Wilson, on his campaign website, declared the funding announcement proved him right. Though most farm workers are here legally, the Pew Hispanic Center estimates that about a quarter of them are undocumented.

"It is inevitable that they will serve illegal aliens," Wilson said. "The president specifically promised the American people that 'Obamacare' would not cover those who are here illegally. He misled all of us."
