Axelrod Email: 'If the president loses...'
How worried are the Democrats now? So worried that they're raising their fundraising panic level to 11. During last night's speeches at the RNC in Tampa, Obama guru David Axelrod sent out the following email. It defends a job killing policy that the majority of Americans did not and do not want. But it's all Team Obama has.
Subject: If the President loses...
From: David Axelrod
Judging from the number of times they've said it this week, you would think repealing Obamacare on Day One is the most urgent goal of the Republican Party and number one reason to elect Mitt Romney.
I'd like to know what's noble about making it harder for people to get health care.
President Obama refused to give up on this legislation because he knew it was about real people -- people like his own mother who, in her final days, battled cancer and mounting bills, or my daughter Lauren, whose intractable epilepsy, at just seven months old, nearly bankrupted our family and burdened her with a pre-existing condition that threatened her future coverage.
Today, there are millions of families like ours who won't have to suffer through needless heartache over situations beyond their control.
If the President loses, Republicans are guaranteeing those protections will be gone with him.
You can make sure that doesn't happen. Donate $3 or more before this Friday's critical FEC deadline.
When the Supreme Court affirmed the Affordable Care Act, I was moved to tears. This week, the Republicans are moving a lot of people to act as well -- to make sure they can't take their destructive platform to the White House.
The next time you hear someone at the Republican convention attack Obamacare, remember what they're actually trying to take away:
Thanks for standing with the President.
