U.S. Representative Pete Stark

(D-CA) meet with residents of the 13th Congressional District on Saturday, September 12th in Fremont, San Leandro, and Alameda.

A senior citizen lit into various Obamacare talking points and told Rep. Stark: “Don’t pee on my leg and then tell me it’s raining.”

Stark grabbed the microphone and lashed back: “I wouldn’t dignify you by peeing on your leg. It wouldn’t be worth wasting the urine.”

This behavior to the people is generally ignored and dismissed. Meanwhile, congress, led by Nancy Pelosi, formally admonished Republican Rep. Joe Wilson for shouting “you lie” during President Obama’s speech to a joint session of Congress last week.

“When we are done here today, we will not have taken any further steps toward helping” the nation deal with urgent challenges, said Wilson, of South Carolina. “It is time that we move forward and get back to work for the American people.”

Wilson’s “You lie” outburst came as Obama said that illegal immigrants would not be eligible for federal subsidies to purchase health insurance under his overhaul plan. Democrats have insisted that their proposals prohibit undocumented immigrants from getting assistance. Republicans say the legislation needs stronger verification requirements.

The fact remains that the bill does not explicitly state undocumented immigrants will be prohibited from getting assistance.

In the final analysis, Mr. Wilson’s claim that Mr. Obama lies, stands.
