|Walsh with Marathon Pundit|
Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL) was quite animated as he spoke against ObamaCare at a breakout session during TeaCon 2011. Next year's elections, the McHenry Republican said that 2012 offers Americans "the last shot we have to repeal it, if we don't we can't go back--ever."
As for the Democrats, the House freshman offered this observation: "Their goal is to have every single American dependent upon the government for health care."
Also speaking at the session was Dr. Kurt Erickson, a cardiologist who gave a rundown of his frustrations with ObamaCare, and C. Steven Tucker, an insurance health insurance broker who discussed the regulatory nightmare of the Democrats' health care reform plan.
