Imagine how many boxes of tissues he will need after Thursday when the SCOTUS rejects that individual mandate.
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.”
Who wants to bet that if Obamacare stands, the situation above would be worse?
