Just another example of how ridiculously extreme the radical Republican right is. They are losing donors because the donors want them to be even MORE vicious in their class warfare against the non-wealthy.

Yep, nothing like equal representation for all. Poor guy is mad that his millions didn't buy what he wanted from our representatives. Hmmm. Something just sounds wrong about that doesn't it.

This guy is torqued and will take his piggy bank and go home because the Republicans have not managed to get something passed which will, as far as I can see, directly benefit his business? The community spirit is awe-inspiring.

They continue to show you their objective and true priority while shoveling the bs "jobs, jobs" mantra at you.... How many more times do they need to reveal themselves before you see it?! Quit voting against your own best interests...

Awww...poor Mr. Cummins. His money couldn't buy the Republicans off. Actually, I'm SHOCKED. What's going on here Republicans? Your biggest donor couldn't buy you off this time?

I don't understand. Is somebody offering the politicians more money than Cummins to do the opposite of what he wants?

What is the world coming to when a guy can't even buy Republican legislators any more?

Well, Cummins could always move his operation to a "right-to-work" state. Of course, the quality of life there is such he'd probably live here and manage from afar.

He didn't get the Right to Work(over) labor legislation his little heart desired, so now Little Lord Fauntleroy is gonna take his marbles and pout all the way home to momma.

What a self-centered, self-absorbed, "Me, me and only me" bunch of Scrooges "modern" greed-lust Righties are.
