I heard a figure for the number of speeches Obama has given since elected. The number was a little hard to believe but after some checking, I believe the number is close. CBS reported that President Obama delivered his 200th speech since taking office when Obama announced his nomination for U.S. Surgeon General on July 13, 2009. At a later date, a blog site posted the number of speeches and remarks as 262. The addition of the word remarks detracts somewhat from the information I was seeking but worthwhile nothing nonetheless. The 262 number may include Obamas speeches before and after his election.
In any case, this quote from a wise Indian Chief comes to mind. It does not require many words to speak the truth. Chief Joseph (Hinmaton, Yalatkit) Nez Perce-(Nimiputimt) (???-1905).
This next observation applies to all politicians; Political language ... is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.
President Obama was quite clear when he stated in his September 9, 2009 address to Congress, 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.
At this point in the Presidents speech Joe Wilson, a South Carolina Republican member of Congress shouted the words, you lie. Later that same evening Congressman Wilson apologized to President Obama and the President accepted his apology. However, it begs the question, what moved Congressman Wilson to emote such a rude outburst?
In any case, I would suggest that the socialist, liberals, and democrats who are still experiencing distress over Joe Wilsons words demand that he prove his assertion that Obama lied. The search for that answer should either satisfy or silence the liberals.
Another cogent question that relates to this issue ask if HR3200 does not apply to those who are here legally what will provide for their health care needs?

“Did President Obama Lie?”
Is the pope catholic?
Did words come out of his mouth?
I think a more appropriate question is, “Did the jOker tell the truth?”
he lied when he took the Oath
When has he not?
Did he open his mouth?
So, no, Obama didn't lie.
The Congressional Research Service has issued their report regarding the treatment of noncitizens in H.R. 3200. There has been a lot of debate over this topic, with the president and democrats saying illegals are not covered, while those opposed to the bill saying they are. A number of loopholes in the bill, including no provisions for checking immigrations status, prove illegal immigrants can and will be covered by the bill, at the taxpayers expense. The Summary of the report is include below. If you would like to read the entire report, please click on CRS Report. August 25, 2009 Treatment of Noncitizens in H.R. 3200 Congressional Research Service Summary This report outlines the treatment of noncitizens (aliens) under H.R. 3200, Americas Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009. In particular, the report analyzes specific provisions in H.R. 3200, and whether there are eligibility requirements for noncitizens in the provisions. Within the bill, noncitizens are treated differently in several provisions. In 2008, there were approximately 37.3 million foreign-born persons in the United States. The foreign-born population was comprised of approximately 15.1 million naturalized U.S. citizens and 22.2 million noncitizens. H.R. 3200 includes an individual mandate to have health insurance, with tax penalties for noncompliance. Individuals who do not maintain acceptable health insurance coverage for themselves and their children would be required to pay an additional tax. Some individuals, including nonresident aliens, would be exempt from the individual mandate. Nonresident alien is a term under tax but not immigration law. For federal tax purposes, alien individuals are classified as resident or nonresident aliens. In general, an individual is a nonresident alien unless he or she meets the qualifications under a residency test. Thus, legal permanent residents, and noncitizens and unauthorized aliens who qualify as resident aliens (i.e., meet the substantial presence test), would be required under H.R. 3200 to have health insurance.
Like a rug
When you see his mouth moving he’s either eating or lying and I didn’t see him with any bags of pork skins last night.
Ever wondered just how they came to be called ‘politicians’?
What the root of the word ‘politician’ is?
Did he move his lips?
When doesn’t he lie?
“So again I ask, did President Lie?”
Does a bear relieve himself in the woods?
“Did Obama lie?”
Is there air?
Does the wind blow, stars shine, birds fly, fish have scales?
The AP said he did...NY POST said he did.
