Today’s MSNBC story on the recent health insurance reform included this nugget:
When all is said and done, the majority of working-age Americans and their families will still have employer-sponsored coverage, as they do now. But the number of uninsured will drop by more than half. Illegal immigrants would account for more than one-third of the remaining 23 million people without coverage.
That last line, of course, means that when Rep. Joe Wilson shouted out, “You lie!” during the State of the Union he wasn’t just incredibly rude, he was also flat wrong.
