David Axelrod: I Had A ‘Big Cry’ When President’s Health Care Law Was Passed
Meidaite ^ | 6/26/12 | Alex Alvarez

David Axelrod, senior adviser for Barack Obama‘s 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 Obama’s 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 weren’t covered by her insurance and we couldn’t 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 House’s 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.”

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.

I don’t believe Mr. Axelrod had any problems paying the bills for his child.

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.

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.

.. 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...

Not to be too callous or cold hearted...but I would bet this story is complete bovine matter

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.
