Firms with Obama ties profit from health push
« on: August 20, 2009, 10:33:09 AM »

By SHARON THEIMER,
WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama's push for a national health care overhaul is providing a financial windfall in the election offseason to Democratic consulting firms that are closely connected to the president and two top advisers.

Coalitions of interest groups running at least $24 million in pro-overhaul ads hired GMMB, which worked for Obama's 2008 campaign and whose partners include a top Obama campaign strategist. They also hired AKPD Message and Media, which was founded by David Axelrod, a top adviser to Obama's campaign and now to the White House. AKPD did work for Obama's campaign, and Axelrod's son Michael and Obama's campaign manager David Plouffe work there.

Why did you make a new topic when you already did this rant elsewhere....
And the healthcare industyry is paying 150 million A DAY to fight it.  Hmmm, now who is opposed to healthcare reform that is getting all that money?
