Joe Walsh Suggests Breaking Law to Fight Affordable Care Act in Chicago

January 10, 2013 7:15am | By Ted Cox, DNAinfo Reporter/Producer

"CHICAGO — Tea Party favorite Joe Walsh says conservatives are losing the "war" for U.S. voters and encouraged his backers at a South Loop rally to engage in civil disobedience to defy the Affordable Care Act or new gun regulations. At his most aggressive, he told dozens of supporters to "defy and or break the law and engage in civil disobedience" if faced with federal health care law restrictions or new gun laws. He paraphrased Thomas Jefferson in saying, "We may have to shed blood every couple hundred years to preserve our freedoms."The one-term McHenry County congressman, who lost his re-election bid to Democrat Tammy Duckworth in November, openly contemplated breaking away from the Republican Party during a Wednesday rally at Blackie's, 755 S. Clark St. And in the end of the rally he began organizing a statewide movement he said would "scare Republicans and Democrats.""No rah rahs," he said as he kicked off his address with tough love. "We're losing."Conservatives are losing to progressives, he said, because "our side doesn't understand we're at war.""
From Politico. An Attorney General.

Virginia Attorney General and GOP gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli on Wednesday urged opponents of an Obamacare mandate on contraception coverage to dig in their heels, exercise civil disobedience and be prepared to "go to jail" for the cause.
