Struggling DNC craves tax dollars for convention

4 posts in this topic

Already struggling with finances, the Democratic Party has drafted a plan to have taxpayers help pay about $20 million for next summer’s nominating convention, reversing a change Congress approved just a year ago.

Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who is also a congresswoman from Florida, has drafted a bill to restore money that both parties used to receive from the federal government to help defray the costs of running their quadrennial conventions.

Wasserman... please quit politics!  She's so annoying and dangerous to this Republic.  Anyone feel like "helping to defray the costs of running their quadrennial conventions?"  I sure as hell DON'T!

" The CBO said Ms. Wasserman Schultz’s legislation would tap into the Presidential Election Campaign Fund — the money taxpayers can earmark on their annual filing forms to help defray the costs of presidential campaigns — and make it available to political conventions."

To think that these particular people are getting their hands on this money really pisses me off!

Ha! That's just great. So a single person can't donate billions to their campaign so they want the tax payers to give it to them! That's just really f***ked up!

The DNC is facing tough financial circumstances. The latest report shows it had just $4.7 million in cash on hand as of Oct. 31, less than the $6.9 million in debts the committee reported. By contrast, the Republican National Committee reported $20.4 million in cash, offset by $1.9 million in debts.

So the democratic party is running a deficit budget just like the clowns in  Washington DC.Yeah, we really need 4 more years of that piled onto the existing burden.
