David Axelrod

Any time you have loose ballots, you have to worry about shenanigans. It's a shame such a hard-fought election has to come down to something like this.More David Axelrod [07/11/2011 07:07:50]
But obviously, we're looking for all good ideas to help deal with our long-term debt problem. This is something that is going to affect our economy. It affects our kids. And we need to deal with it.More David Axelrod [07/11/2011 07:07:58]
But we are not going to stand by and go back to allowing people with preexisting conditions to be discriminated against, go back to the situation where people can be thrown off their insurance simply because they become seriously ill or you can't get on your parents' insurance after the age of 20.More David Axelrod [07/11/2011 07:07:07]
But you say, does it represent change? The change is that we are fighting an insurance industry that has killed health reform for generations. They're spending tens of millions of dollars right now to defeat this bill, and we're on the doorstep of winning a great victory for the American people.More David Axelrod [07/11/2011 07:07:14]
I have never believed in the Wizard of Oz theory of consulting, that I am all-knowing and all-seeing, and that everyone around me is kind of a backbencher.More David Axelrod [07/11/2011 07:07:29]
I haven't given up on working... across the aisle on issues and maybe it'll take an election or two for that to fully ferment, maybe it you know sometimes it takes awhile for people to realize what the best path is.More David Axelrod [07/11/2011 07:07:36]
I see my job simply as helping disseminate the message of Barack Obama, working with the communications team to make sure that we're true to the ideals and the values and the programs that he wants to advance in this country. And that's the extent of my involvement.More David Axelrod [07/11/2011 07:07:44]
I think President Obama is a committed, practicing nonideologue. He's consumed by neither tactics nor ideology. He is more concerned about outcomes than he is about process and categorizations.More David Axelrod [07/11/2011 07:07:51]
If you look at the themes that he struck from the minute he started running for president through today, there is a very high level of consistency, and there is a sense that he is who he is. Obama's governing is completely consistent with the way he campaigned and the themes on which he campaigned, the issues he highlighted, the vision he sharedMore David Axelrod [07/11/2011 07:07:10]
No one wants to go back to a situation where, if you have a pre-existing medical condition, you, you can be deprived of coverage. No one wants to go back to a situation where, if you get seriously ill, you can get thrown off your insurance. Seniors don't want to go back to paying more for their prescription drugsMore David Axelrod [07/11/2011 07:07:17]
People understand we're on the doorstep of doing something really historic that will help the American people and strengthen our country for the long run.More David Axelrod [07/11/2011 07:07:30]
The place where we don't agree is on whether there should be some restraint on insurance companies and whether they should be allowed to run wild. We believe there should be some restraint; some on the other side don't think so.More David Axelrod [07/11/2011 07:07:44]
The truth is that as we move forward, if one side says we can't raise any taxes on anybody or any interest, and the other side says we can't cut anything, we're obviously not going to make progress on this. And our interest is in making progress on this.More David Axelrod [07/11/2011 07:07:50]
We can't have - we can't have a patchwork of 50 states developing their own immigration policy. I understand the frustration of people in Arizona. They want the federal government to step up and deal with this problem once and for all, and that's what we want to do.More David Axelrod [07/11/2011 07:07:26]
We have to deal with the world as we find it. The world of what it takes to get this done.More David Axelrod [07/11/2011 07:07:41]
We know that 10 million more people will lose insurance in the next 10 years if we don't act.More David Axelrod [07/11/2011 07:07:48]

I came to the conclusion months ago, and I said it to members of Congress, that the only way people are going to fully appreciate what this reform is if we pass it and implement it and it becomes not a caricature but a reality, and I still believe that. More David Axelrod [11/26/2011 03:11:03]
So I think it will be easier to sell it moving forward than it was to this point.More David Axelrod [11/26/2011 03:11:17]
