Raising millions of dollars for a job that pays $175K/year.
Religious freedom aint for all Americans - only the self-righteous.
It's disgusting how much money Congresswoman Bachmann rakes in every election.
"It's all because of our message," Ryan said. "The country is so ready to be talked to like adults."
Thank you, ALEC.
Boehner, I can't understand but Bachmann, Ryan, West, and Cantor it is understandable. Nut jobs and extremists will donate to those who push their political and social agendas. Religious Right, Gun rights, Anti-Abortion advocates, Anti-Gay, Pro-religion, and anti-tax advocates have migrated to extremists at the far right edge. This article speaks to need for campaign contribution reform. Senator...you can only recieve donations from those in your state. House of representatives...only from people in your district. Presidential..from any state. Maximum contribution from any single taxable/non-taxable entity 50k. You want to give to two or three campaigns...the 50k has to be broken up among them.
This proves that there is a big market for crazy. All five of them continue to say totally crazy, fringe things, with Bachmann and West at the top of the heap. The crazier, more lunatic rightwing things you dream up, the more cash you make. Conclusion? A fool and his money are soon parted.
You're doing a great job Michele, Please keep it up!
Obviously a lot of this money is coming from corporations and the 1%'ers who have already bought these candidates. Let's hope come Nov they have buyers remorse.
