Joe Wilson of South Carolina -- the lawmaker who shouted "You Lie" at President Barack Obama during a speech -- remained hospitalized on Thursday with an "extended fever," his congressional office said.
Wilson contracted Lyme disease, a tick-borne illness, after working in his yard. He is being treated at the Lexington Medical Center in West Columbia, South Carolina, said Eric Dell, Wilson's chief of staff.

My friend almost died with that, In fact they had to bring him back with paddles, that was a month ago and he still is in bad shape from it.
I wish him luck , he is one of the only ones in Congress with a pair.
Watch out for that obamacare, Joe...
Godspeed for a quick recovery.
I hate to hear that. It is not a fun thing to deal with!!
See what happens when an illegal doesn’t tend your yard??
Hope he’s OK.
When 0bama said 0bamacare wouldn't cover illegal aliens Congressman Joe Willson stood up and said “YOU LIE!”.
He was correct.
I hope he gets better ASAP. He got a raw deal from the Congress and the media.
I drove by there Tuesday.
Joe Wilson said YOU LIE because he couldn’t stand that Muslim playing Communist telling the lies he tells continuously.
Obama is a Muslim #1 but he has taken the communist agenda of people like John Kerry and Nancy Polisi and is destroying the United States with their agenda.
Obama could give a rats A$$ about the oppressed blacks in the country. He is spending to enslave Americans with the debt that only a traitor could generate. I was in one of Joe Wilson’s satellite offices a few months ago and it was being argued Joe Wilson and others know what is going on but the comparison to Rodney King riots was used: We cannot put up with every window on Main Street being broken by the riots if we impeach Obama.
Instead these Republican IDIOTS would rather destroy our country rather than deal with a few communists who want to live on the producers in this country. My argument was bring it on, the sooner the better. If there are rioters who want to destroy because Obama is destroyed when he is exposed for his treason, then let’s let it happen.
The Traitors who placed Obama in power need to be hung for treason. Anything less than that response gives the traitors what they want.
Hoping for a quick recovery. Lyme disease is no joke.
Prayers up for his recovery. Lyme Disease can be deadly.
As a side note Amy Tan also suffers from this disease and one of her last books tells her story of misdiagnoses and mistreatment.
My sister-in-law had a stroke at the age of 55 after being diagnosed with Lyme disease. The bug got into her heart muscles and caused a fibrillation which caused the blood to develop clots. It can affect muscles, joints, nerves and bones, and manifest in any area of the body.
NO...congressmen/women and senators aren’t on obamacare and never will be.
A falling tide lowers all boats.
1. The senate is majority democrat. They would never vote to convict obama, making a house vote to impeach a waste of time, money and effort.
2. The democrats would use the house vote and subsequent senate acquittal as a weapon to beat on republicans until Nov. 12.
That’s Nov. 2012.
Prayers up. Now how did those ticks get there?
I know someone, too, like that—and it’s been awful trying to keep them off the dogs, even with the great new flea/tick meds...bad year for ticks
