Obama Staffers Profit from Obama Health Care Plan (Axelrod consulting firm gets big contracts)
American Spectator ^ | 8.23.09 @ 6:17AM | By Doug Bandow

It turns out that President Barack "Change" Obama isn't changing things that much after all. At least not for David Axelfod, who appears to be playing the classic Washington insider's game for fun and profit....

While Axelrod worked behind the scenes to craft policy that would lead to a government overhaul of the medical industry, his firm in Chicago lobbied special interest groups to earn massive media contracts that would help dictate political discourse during the debate.... Obama's efforts to push his health care reform agenda have created a "financial windfall in the election offseason to Democratic consulting firms that are closely connected" to the President and Axelrod....

Axelrod ....will draw $2 million from the firm over the next four years.

Who’s surprised?

Besides, this kind of thing is only a problem when Republicans do it.

This should jeopardize all the dems’ agenda and definitively sink OBAMAO’s libtard ship in a normal world

Just proves that “Mack Daddy” is only a figurehead phony TOTUS due to his selling his soul to others to become nothing more than a squatter in the Whitehouse.

Surprise surprise surprise...

The aristocrats in the government do things to get them and their buddies richer.

Time to either throw them out of office, or get out the tar and feathers.
