Actions sometimes have consequences;

Opponent of ‘You Lie’ Rep. raises $96,000 overnight

However congresscritter you lie;

Exposed: Obama speech disrupter received $240,000 from healthcare industry; Largest industry donor

Me thinks the you lie outburst was connected to the payola he received from health care lobbyists more than the delusions he is under about the claim he made which is demonstratively false;

From FactCheck.org:

One Republican congressman issued a press release claiming that “5,600,000 Illegal Aliens May Be Covered Under Obamacare,” and we’ve been peppered with queries about similar claims. They’re not true. In fact, the House bill (the only bill to be formally introduced in its entirety) specifically says that no federal money would be spent on giving illegal immigrants health coverage:

H.R. 3200: Sec 246 — NO FEDERAL PAYMENT FOR UNDOCUMENTED ALIENS

Nothing in this subtitle shall allow Federal payments for affordability credits on behalf of individuals who are not lawfully present in the United States.

Also, under current law, those in the country illegally don’t qualify for federal health programs. Of interest: About half of illegal immigrants have health insurance now, according to the nonpartisan Pew Hispanic Center, which says those who lack insurance do so principally because their employers don’t offer it.

Which means when the idiot screeched you lie he wasn’t being honest as well as violating the decorum required of congresscritters when ever the president Of the united states addresses the joint sessions of congress.

But then again he is from the state where;

South Carolina, where the Nullification Crisis even predates their traitorous activity during the civil war.

South Carolina first shots fired to start the Civil War

South Carolina Rep Preston Brooks almost beats US Senator Charles Sumner to death on Senate floor after Sumner gives Speech against slavery.

South Carolina gave us Senator Strom Thurmond…need I say more?

South Carolina ranks 48 out of 50 on the Americas Health ranking IE it is near the bottom.

South Carolina, where Karl Rove used the untrue smear that John McCain fathered a African-American baby, so bush could recover from his loss in New Hampshire, to use the bigoted racists (like the congresscritter) to win there.

South Carolina Rep Joe Wilson first representative to call first black president of the untied states a liar from the floor of the house!

But then again South Carolina ranks 47th in the nation on both the ACT and SAT, can’t expect too much from them can we?

After all they have re-elected congresscritteryou lie more then once.

Too bad the republicans haven’t been honest or truthful through out the debate,

They hyped disinformation and out right lies,

Sent people to deny Americans their first amendment rights to speak, when their congress critter held town halls,

They spread lies through the corporate owned MSM all for the continued obscene profits of the same corporations which have created the health care mess we are currently facing ….

What a bunch of WATBs, but then again they have always been that also.

As an addendum,

Opponent of ‘You Lie’ Rep. raises $405,000 in a day

This seems to be congresscritter you lie(R-idiotville) macaca moment.

The donor page is available here.

Now it is $596,029 9:10 PM

  1. Excellent post, Clif! Let’s hope South Carolina joins Texas in secession! I’m so glad you did this post because I couldn’t wait to get home and point out how much money Mo Wilson’s opponent had raised today! Incredible. I think this is what we should do from now on….whenever Glenn Beck or one of the other conservative knuckle draggers has a reich wing Rep or Senator on their shows, we should raise money for the asshole’s opponent! LOL I would personally love it.

    Illegal immigrants ARE NOT ALLOWED TO TAKE/BUY THE PUBLIC OPTION A FEW YEARS FROM NOW (you have to be an American just like you have to be one for Social Security & Medicare), but they can purchase a plan through the EXCHANGE PROGRAM.

  2. Clif, here’s an email I got from ActBlue today:

    “Today the nation watched you raise $400,000 in one day to help show Republican Congressman Joe Wilson the door. Rep. Wilson made waves last night by heckling President Obama, shouting, “you lie!” in the middle of the President’s address to Congress.

    Starting at 9:30 last night, you stepped up to say you wouldn’t tolerate that sort of disgraceful, boorish behavior in our nation’s capitol. For almost 3 hours this morning, you were raising $1,000 a minute for Democrat Rob Miller, Wilson’s opponent in 2010. And by mid-afternoon today, you’d hung a $200,000 pricetag on each word of Rep. Wilson’s outburst.

    The momentum is still building. CNN, the Washington Post and the Nation noticed your efforts, and are reporting them to an even larger audience. As of this email, 10,000 of you have raised more for Rob Miller than the entire pharmaceutical industry gave to Rep. Wilson last cycle. That’s real grassroots fundraising.

    It wouldn’t be possible without ActBlue, and a $15 recurring donation is all it takes to make sure we’re there the next time a Republican does something stupid.

    Good ideas depend on us, and we depend on you.

    From all of us at ActBlue, thanks.

  3. Kay, congresscritter you lie (R-idiotville) opponent Iraq War veteran Rob Miller has now raised over $500,000 due to the stupidity of another brain dead reich winger.

  4. Newly revised estimates from Citizens for Tax Justice show that the
    Bush tax cuts cost the U.S. Treasury almost $2.5 trillion since
    first enacted in 2001. Preliminary estimates from the non-partisan
    Congressional Budget Office show that the House Democrats’ health
    care reform legislation is projected to cost $1 trillion over the
    next decade if it becomes law, easily enough to pay for health-care
    for ALL Americans. And yet, many of the lawmakers who argue that
    the health care reform legislation is “too costly” are the same
    lawmakers who supported the Bush tax cuts. They are also the same
    politicians who supported the ONE TRILLION DOLLAR Bush folly in
    Iraq.

  5. BTW, congresscritter’you lie’s second lie he couldn’t control himself, contradicts his history,

    Graduated from Washington and Lee University in 1969, obtained a Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree from the University of South Carolina School of Law in 1972, served as a judge, and is retired from the USAR as a colonel of the JAG corps.

    He KNOWS the decorum required in such situations, he just decided a African-American president doesn’t deserve his respect. After all he is a member of Sons of Confederate Veterans,

    a group the SCLC has said;

    has been taken over in the past decade by radical neo-Confederates who favor secession and defend slavery as a benign institution.

    and he;

    Now, add this to the fact that Joe Wilson, as a state legislator, was one of only seven Republicans to go against their own party and vote to keep the Dixie Rebel flag flying over the South Carolina capitol:

    The flag came down that year after Republicans in both houses went for a compromise that would put it on Statehouse grounds at the Confederate Soldier’s monument. The “Magnificent Seven” of Senators who voted to keep the flag up included current Congressman Joe Wilson

    Nice still defends slavery and votes to keep the flag of traitors to the United States of America flying. Typical anal retentive brain dead reich winger.

  6. By the way, the plugin for the comment editor freaked out and part of it isn’t working. I’ll fix it tomorrow. Son needs the computer for now. Night all! :-)

  7. I just sent some money to Rob Miller, the Iraq vet Democrat who is
    running against Rep. Joe Wilson next year. In the past 24 hours
    Miller has received $630,000 from those who want to kick all
    racists out of the Congress.

  8. I would love to see Iraq veteran Rob Miller win South Carolina’s
    District II seat next year. However, just read that district hasn’t
    gone Democratic since 1965 due to Democratic President Lyndon B.
    Johnson promoting and signing the Civil and Voting Rights Acts.
    Nixon was right there to invite the racist Democrats like Strom
    Thurmond (Joe Wilson’s hero) to switch to the “Party of Lincoln”.
    District II is also home to two U.S. Marine bases at Parris Island
    and Beaufort and the Army’s Fort Jackson, so has many right-wing
    gung-ho militarist voters.

  9. The blogger who put up the Glenn Beck Raped and Murdered a
    Girl in 1990
    warned earlier today that he expected his site
    to be shut down since Beck’s lawyers were threatening his server.
    Looks like he has lost his “first amendment rights!” /snark Beck
    has refused to make a comment but he is constantly “making shit up”
    but can’t take it when others do the same to him.
