Rising Calls for President Obama To Apologize To The Nation
The national non-partisan immigration enforcement organization known as ALIPAC is calling on President Barack Obama to publicly apologize to the Congress, media, and the entire nation for lying about illegal immigrants not having access to health care reform benefits.
“Considering the large volume of evidence suggesting President Obama lied in his speech before Congress, he should follow Congressman Joe Wilson’s example and apologize immediately,” said William Gheen of ALIPAC. “Many people feel Joe Wilson was rude, but that is pale by comparison to the President of the United States of America intentionally lying to Congress, the media, and every American.”
Obama’s claim that illegal aliens would not be covered by his health care reform plans have been disproved by the lack of enforcement measures in HR 3200, Democrat party line votes blocking any enforcement amendments to the bills, the fact that the US Senate is now moving to close loopholes Obama said did not exist, and the Congressional Research Service analysis showing Obama’s comments to be incorrect.
Further evidence that Obama intends to offer these benefits to illegal aliens are found in the fact his initial national estimates of the number of uninsured in America included over 6.6 uninsured illegal aliens.
President Obama also told Katie Couric in a recent interview he plans to push for a “path to citizenship” for illegal aliens and that would qualify them for all taxpayer benefits and American jobs.
The Congressional Research Service analysis notes “that most of the language in the main House bill does not include illegals — but has few mechanisms for enforcing this. The bill’s individual mandate to get coverage does include illegals.” (Investor’s Business Daily, 9/11/2009)
A recent Rasmussen poll showed that 83% of Americans oppose taxpayer health care benefits for illegal aliens in the United States.
Congressman Joe Wilson has announced that he will not apologize again for his comments and FOX News is reporting the Congressman’s website is under Cyber attack after raising close to 1 Million dollars in the few days following his “You Lie!” outburst.
“President Obama came to power asking Americans to BELIEVE in what he was saying and that belief has given way to ‘YOU LIE’,” said William Gheen. “Every American, regardless of their race, political party, or stances on health care reform or illegal immigration suffers when a sitting President lies to the nation.”
The recent dust up between Congressman Joe Wilson and President Obama is leading to more immigration enforcement in the US Senate, where Democratic leaders are rushing to close the loopholes that Obama claimed did not exist. Wilson’s ‘YOU LIE’ comment may have also stymied US Senator Chuck Schumer’s (D-NY) plan to introduce Comprehensive Immigration Reform AMNESTY legislation this past week. The Obama administration cannot promote Amnesty on top of health care reform, without making the President’s recent lie more obvious.
“Over time the truth will get out there and Obama’s support levels will fall even more just like Bush,” said William Gheen. “Obama just lied about his illegal alien weapons of mass job destruction.”
Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC) is a non-partisan, mulit-ethnic, national grass roots organization fighting against amnesty and illegal immigration that has endorsed the campaigns of Congressman Joe Wilson since 2004. ALIPAC’s supporters are calling their members of Congress today to request pressure for Obama to apologize.
ALIPAC’s comments on the Wilson Vs. Obama conflict appeared in the New York Times, Boston Globe, Los Angeles Times, Congressional Quarterly, and National Public Radio.
