President Barack Obama, Spartanburg SC

SC Congressman Joe Wilson took to the national airwaves tonight during President Obama’s healthcare speach to a joint session of the Congress.

As if on queue, Congressman Joe Wilson let out a “YOU LIE”, immediately after President Obama stated that his plan did not allow for illegal immigrants to participate.

You tell us, after reading the section of the bill below, did Obama lie?
