I believe the congressman was wrong in speaking out and saying: "You lie". However, President Obama knows that unless there is something to screen out all illegal aliens in this country, they will be eligible for any program (as they seem to be now). Congressional efforts, though weak, indicate that they are aware that illegals would be able to get in on any health program. I believe illegal aliens will be covered, regardless of what the congress may or may not do. As for Jimmy Carter, he still likes his name in headlines. As one 24 year old asked recently: "Who is Jimmy Carter?" Certainly the indignity suffered by Taylor Swift must be racist also.
