    From NBC's Mike Viqueira

    The White House tonight is providing the below clarification on what the president's health-care proposals would mean when it comes to the issue of illegal immigrants.

    The question, as we all know, arises from the Wilson "You lie" outburst, and the core claim that notwithstanding specific bill language barring illegal immigrants from participating in the "exchange," as a practical matter, there is no way of verifying the citizenship of applicants -- which is the current state of play. Republicans say that then means illegal immigrants would end up being enrolled in plans -- bill language or no bill language.

    Today, for the first time as far as we know, the administration is backing a provision that would require proof of citizenship before someone could enroll in a plan selected on the exchange.

    Rep. Joe Wilson's statement to Obama may do more to focus attention on the democrats attempt to make this country socialist than anything that has yet happened.

    You should be pleased. Isn't this what you want. I support it too.

    Why should anyone have to prove citizenship for anything when no proof is required to run for President.

    Typical jockeying on demands... take ONE item from the laundry-list of complaints and give in, then expect us to be satisfied and back the bill. Oi! The entire thing is needs to go away.
