Did the president lie?

Did the president lie?

An un-enforced law is practically the same as no law at all, e.g., president Obama, on Wednesday, 9th of September, 2009, in a speech to Congress said that in the wording of the new medical coverage law, it does not cover illegal aliens. He was shouted “You lied” by republican congressman Wilson from South Carolina, who later appologized to the president.

 

What is the truth?

 

The truth is that illegal aliens who would apply for medical treatment will not be denied it because there are no mechanisms established by the new law as to how to prevent illegal aliens from getting the coverage. Thus, technically, the president did not lie, but practically he did so unknowingly.
