GOP Rep. Joe Wilson Tells Media His "You Lie" Outburst at Obama was "Spontaneous" - Video 9/10/09

Here is video of South Carolina GOP Rep. Joe Wilson speaking to the press today about his shouting "You Lie" at President Obama last night during Obama's Health Care Speech to Congress.

Wilson indicates he called the White House and apologized, and said the White House told him they needed to have a civil discussion on the issues.

Wilson then explained he did what he did in the heat of the moment: "It was spontaneous." He also explained he was particularly upset by the fact Democrats had twice defeated amendments to legislation that would have barred illegal immigrants from being covered by the bill. So, when Obama said no illegals would be covered, Wilson shouted "You Lie."
