House plans to admonish Rep. Wilson over insult
Made popular 1868 days ago in
Democratic leaders are planning a House vote early next week to admonish Republican Rep. Joe Wilson if he does not apologize on the House floor for yelling "You lie!" during President Barack Obama's health care address to Congress.
National attention from the heckling episode has money pouring into Wilson's campaign treasury and that of his 2010 Democratic challenger. Wilson had raised more than $700,000 since the incident as of Friday, according to the National Republican Congressional Committee. His opponent, Rob Miller, had received more than $875,000, according to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
Democratic leaders initially showed mixed interest in punishing Wilson. But they decided at a meeting late Thursday that they probably will propose a resolution of disapproval early next week if he doesn't apologize to Congress, said Brendan Daly, a spokesman for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Should Wilson apologize to the Nation on the House Floor?
Yes a must
This is not a scientific survey,
to learn more. Results may not total 100% due to rounding and voting descrepencies.

A must, we should not let Wilson set any kind of precedence in the chamber.

if you people have payed attention to politics for years, democrats would boo Bush in Congress. Democrats always seem to make a big deal when a republican does something. If Wilson should apologize, then Obama should apologize for saying in the speech that certain politicians "lied". He could have had more decency & just stated that it was "not true'. i know it means the same thing but it doesn't sound as harsh. All Mr. Wilson did was say the same thing back. These congressman are under a lot of stress and he was just feeling what he believed. What difference does it make if he says it during the speech or later on in an interview that what Obama was saying was not accurate.

It has been proven that Rep. Wilson told the truth & obama lied. The Dems are trying to make sure what obama lied about becomes fact!
Obama should be admonished for his speech not Wilson for telling the truth!
