WASHINGTON--When President Obama told a joint session of Congress on Wednesday night illegal immigrants would not be covered by his health care plans--debunking what he called a "bogus claim"-- Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.) yelled out, "You lie! You lie!"
Afterwards, Wilson released a statement apologizing for his actions. "This evening I let my emotions get the best of me when listening to the president's remarks regarding the coverage of illegal immigrants in the health care bill. While I disagree with the president's statement, my comments were inappropriate and regrettable. I extend sincere apologies to the president for this lack of civility."
