(CNN) - Rep. Joe Wilson said Sunday he will not apologize again for yelling out that President Barack Obama lied during the president's speech to Congress last week.

"I am not going to apologize again," the South Carolina Republican said on "FOX News Sunday" when asked about pending disciplinary steps against him by the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives.

Wilson said he already apologized to Obama and that the president accepted it. However, he insisted that Obama "was mis-stating the facts," and that Democratic leaders in the House were "playing politics" by continuing to focus on the issue.

By the way, In the 1980's under Reagan, the "law" says, no one will be REFUSED medical care.... this is What Joe is talking about. Anything thrown out for the uninformed and ignorant! Go to any local Hospital and read the Law......... stabilize and referr to their private doctor.........this isn't just for Illegal Immigrants, but for ALL Americans....the problem........ 37 millions of Americans Does Not have a private doctor, or ANY doctor..... they can't afford Healthcare.
