David Axelrod, senior adviser for Barack Obamas re-election campaign, spoke with New York magazine reporter and frequent Morning Joe panelist John Heilemann at 92Y, telling Heilemann that he had a big cry over the passage of President Obamas health care law.

I have a child with a chronic illness, he shared. I was one of those people who almost went bankrupt. She was seven months old and she started having seizures. I was making 35, 38 thousand dollars a year and her medications werent covered by her insurance and we couldnt get her other insurance because she had a pre-existing condition. So I was paying eight to ten thousand dollars out of pocket for medications a year.
He recalls being in the White Houses Roosevelt Room when the voters on the law were coming in, and stepping out for a moment to cry in private. He remembers later thanking the President on behalf of his family, and being told by Obama that this is why we do the work.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Hope you have another big cry when it’s struck down by the SC.
Considering the fact that his daughter would be scheduled for extermination by the death panels if it weren’t for his money and influence, I bet he cried tears of relief.
Can’t wait for his response when deathcare is struck down. Girlie/man weeping?
Well David, get ready for another one.
They’re gonna go berserk if it’s struck down.............berserker.........
I don’t believe Mr. Axelrod had any problems paying the bills for his child.
I find it hard to believe that he ever made 35-38,000 per year.....
It ain’t cheap having an adult living with full time care like his does.
While I can honestly appreciate the fact that he and his wife didn’t choose to exterminate their daughter, I can’t help but wonder what kind of twisted thinking makes it OK to terminate the lives of others.
Will he do hari kari, if it is struck down? Hoping.
Axelbrain, Cry me a river on Thursday, will ya ?
Hopefully he will have another big cry tomorrow.We will see.
Go stand next to Alan Alda in the Girlie-man section.
Well,if there’s a God,Dave,those (if any) who really love you will have to keep sharp objects away from you after this Thursday at 10AM (Eastern).
“Theyre gonna go berserk if its struck down.............berserker.........”
I hope so. Nothing gives me great joy than an unhinged liberal.
The Berserker is just so obscene
Likes evil people you know what I mean
He takes your soul and then just rips you apart
He’ll steal your heart
I figured the rest was a little too risque....
He’s got an even bigger cry coming, especially when the indictments start coming down.
I think she cries a whole lot.
.. but under Obamacare, many of those same expensive medications will be unavailable to anyone at any price! (Much like many cancer chemotherapy drugs are unavailable today!)
Yep, let’s bankrupt the country because there are a few situations where help is needed. Too bad David doesn’t understand how quickly the ‘forever dependent’ will find a way to milk this program - just like they milked ‘disability’... David, Americans are caring people, but the country’s broke and we can’t afford to be fools any longer. Let’s come up with something that works for everyone...
My daughter was born with "health" issues and she took medication for 14 years at a cost of $6,000 a month...which I paid a $15.00 co-pay for it...
She was born with a condition that affects 1 in 250,000 kids and the insurance carrier covered her medication...
“...and being told by Obama that ‘this is why we do the work.’ “
Wrong. They do it to redistribute wealth. That’s what commie pigs like Axelrod and our Dear Leader do. He can take his phoney baloney story and shove it.
