Joe Wilson YouTube: “I Will Not Be Muzzled”

September 10, 2009 2:48 p.m.

Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) has posted this YouTube address, as part of his new fundraising appeal to help defend him from liberal attacks in the wake of his “You lie!” outburst:

“On these issues, I will not be muzzled. I will speak up, and speak loudly, against this risky plan,” Wilson proclaims. “The supporters of the government takeover of health care, and the liberals who want to give health care to illegals, are using my opposition as an excuse to distract from the critical questions being raised about this poorly-conceived plan. they want to silence anyone who speaks out against it. They made it clear they want to defeat me, and pass the plan.”

“Health care is a matter of life and death for so many,” he later adds. “I choose life, with health-insurance reform.”
