You really can’t make this stuff up…

Posted by ALmod on September 15, 2009

For those using the “no federal dollars for illegal aliens” rallying cry against health care and are holding up Joe Wilson as your newfound hero, there’s something you should know.

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.

    I really don’t see how Wilson voted as being relevant. We all know they have a big green button and a big red button in front of them. They sit on them and which ever butt cheek is fatter……you get the point.

    Cplbonehead, that’s probably the best comment I’ve seen anywhere all day!
