Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) just took to the House floor -- and did not apologize again for his "You lie!" outburst.
"Mr. Speaker, I think it is clear to the American people that there are far more important issues facing this nation than what we're addressing right now," said Wilson. "The President said the time for games is over. I agree with the President. He graciously accepted my apology, and the issue is over."
"However, this action today will have done nothing for the taxpayers, to rein in the growing cost and size of the federal government. It will not help more Americans secure jobs, promote better education, ensure retirement, or reform health insurance," he continued "It is the Democrat leadership, in their rush to pass a very bad government health care plan, that is bad medicine for America. It has muzzled the voices we represent and provoked partisanship.
"When we are done here today, we will not have taken any steps closer to helping more American families afford health insurance, or helping small businesses create new jobs. The challenges our nations (sic) faces are far bigger than any one member of this house. It is time that we move forward and get to work for the American people."
