House Speaker Nancy Pelosi made a tear-filled appeal to Republicans to yesterday to "tone down the rhetoric" on health care reform because she fears it will result actions like the murder of Harvey Milk. Huh?
Harvey Milk was not assassinated by Right Wing political activists as Pelosi indicates. The violence of the 70s in San Francisco was from left wing activists, not conservatives. Enough of Pelosi's lies in an attempt to get people to stop exercising their free speech.
On to the President.
Pelosi's comments came on the eve of her move to censure House member Joe Wilson for shouting "you lie!" during a presidential speech. Pelosi initially accepted an apology from Wilson, then decided his actions demanded a reprimand on the floor of the House. Pelosi agreed to a "Resolution of Disapproval."
Ann Coulter in her column this week responded to Pelosi's charge. According to Coulter:
"There are a number of theories about why America's greatest living statesman shouted "You lie!" at that juncture, but mine is that Wilson said it because Obama told a big, fat stinking lie.
"illegal aliens are excluded from precisely one section of the thousand-page, goodie-laden health care bill: Section 246, which distributes taxpayer-funded "affordability credits" to people who can't afford to pay for their own health care.
"Even this minor restriction on taxpayer largesse to illegals will immediately be overturned by the courts. But the point is: Except for vouchers, the bill does not even pretend to exclude illegals from any part of national health care -- including the taxpayer-funded health insurance plan."
