Obamacare: Did the White House create a lobbying group to pay David Axelrod’s company to promote healthcare reform?

June 22, 2012

  According to this article newly released emails show that the White House may have played a direct role in creating an outside lobbying group which was trying to win support for Obamacare. This group (allegedly created by the White House) paid money to  AKPD to run ads promoting Obamacare even while making installment payments to a former employee–David Axelrod–while he was still working for the Obama regime, and AKPD still employees David Axelrod’s son.

  AKPD was a firm started by Davil Axelrod and it earned millions of dollars by helping to elect Barack Obama before the company bought out David Axelrod’s share in the company. David Axelrod played a pivotal role in Barack Obama’s election and it looks like emails show that he was rewarded handsomely when his company got the money from a lobbyist group created by the White House to push Barack Obama’s number one priority and we are to believe this was just an unbelievable coincidence? One has to wonder if the real reason David Axelrod left the White House was to create a wall of separation between himself and the White House because he knew this maneuver was ethically challenged and knew he had to leave to protect Barack Obama.

  It might have been almost possible to believe this was on the level if it wasn’t for the new emails which show the White House may have played a role in creating the group which paid David Axelrod’s company, but it is now quite evident that Barack Obama was involved in the same type of quid pro quo politics that he promised to end once he became president.

    This lobbying group was paid for with taxpayer moniey? There is no end to Obama’s Chicago style corruption, is there? The man is a discredit to the office of the President.

    And this suprises you, why? He has found the new low for a President, time to send him packing.

      Not surprising given his history as president, but this might just be the most glaring example and I would have to think it borders on being illegal.

    I wrote about this in 2009, but at the time I said “It looks like these firms were paid by a coalition from private industry.” I should have known.
