Obama's Ad Agencies From Campaign Signed On to Push ObamaCare; David Axelrod and Son Stand to Benefit Per$onally


Bloomberg reports:

Aug. 15 (Bloomberg) -- Two firms that received $343.3 million to handle advertising for Barack Obama’s White House run last year have profited from his top priority as president by taking on his push for health-care overhaul.

One is AKPD Message and Media, the Chicago-based firm headed by David Axelrod until he left last Dec. 31 to serve as a senior adviser to the president. Axelrod was Obama’s top campaign strategist and is now helping sell the health-care plan. The other firm is Washington-based GMMB Campaign Group, where partner Jim Margolis was also an Obama strategist.

This year, AKPD and GMMB received $12 million in advertising business from Healthy Economy Now (HEN), a coalition that includes the Washington-based Pharmaceutical Research & Manufacturers of America, known as PhRMA, that is seeking to build support for a health-care overhaul, said the coalition’s spokesman, Jeremy Van Ess.

More at Politico and from Michelle Malkin, who has the goods on the entire den of jackals. You'll also be shocked to know that the HEN coalition includes purple-shirted union thugs SEIU, liberal advocacy group Families Now, as well as Pfizer and GSK.

I wonder if this would be getting wall-to-wall play in a Republican Administration, because I can't seem to turn on a TV or a cable news channel like CNN or MSNBC and not see this story being covered today. It's everywhere.
