Rep. Joe Wilson, R-SC.   (House of Representatives)

(Newser) – The man who yelled “You lie!” in response to President Obama’s claim that his health-reform plan won’t include illegal immigrants was South Carolina Republican Rep. Joe Wilson, Politico reports. “There are also those who claim that our reform effort will insure illegal immigrants. This, too, is false—the reforms I’m proposing would not apply to those who are here illegally,” Obama said, occasioning Wilson’s outburst.
