Wealthy donors favored Democrats in the 2014 midterm election by a 3-1 margin

December 25, 2014

elizabeth-warren Before I begin this post: Make no mistake about it, I do not like the fact that wealthy donors, special interest groups, and unions are able to buy elections by outspending ordinary Americans. They influence the elections and ultimately we are forced to choose between  two candidates who have been hand-picked by the establishment.

  Having said that, much to the chagrin of the Democrats, it works both ways. While the Democrats love to attack the Koch brothers there are many wealthy people on the left–such as George Soros and Warren Buffett, to name a couple–who spend tens of thousands of dollars in order to affect the outcome of elections, but this is ignored by the Democrats because they are on the “right” side.

  Elizabeth Warren is now considered a viable alternative to the wealthy Hillary Clinton after her threat to shut down the government over a provision in the cromnibus bill which undid part of the Dodd-Frank legislation.

  But not all is what it seems when it comes to the senior Senator from Massachusetts for she made some of her millions from flipping houses, thereby hurting many of the same people she is now claiming she is fighting for.

  But the hypocrisy of the left does not stop there for now we are learning wealthy donors contributed far more to Democratic candidates in the 2014 election than they did to the Republicans.

  Here is more:

Among the top 100 individual donors to political groups, more than half gave primarily to Democrats or their allies. Among groups that funneled more than $100,000 to allies, the top of the list tilted overwhelmingly toward Democrats — a group favoring the GOP doesn’t appear on the list until No. 14.

The two biggest super PACs of 2014? Senate Majority PAC and House Majority PAC — both backing Democrats.

In all, the top 10 individual donors to outside groups injected almost $128 million into this year’s elections. Democratic-leaning groups collected $91 million of it.

Among the 183 groups that wrote checks of $100,000 or more to another group, Democrats had a 3-to-1 cash advantage. The biggest player was the National Education Association, at $22 million. Not a single Republican-leaning group cracked the top 10 list of those transferring money to others.

Overall, for the campaign season that just ended, donors who gave more than $1 million sent roughly 60 cents of every dollar to liberal groups. Among the 10 biggest donors, Democrats outspent Republicans by an almost 3-to-1 margin.

  The aforementioned Senate Majority PAC just happens to have close ties to Harry Reid, just saying…

  And yet the Democrats are silent on this little fact. What this shows us, in my opinion, is that Democrats really have no problem with wealthy donors as long as they are contributing to liberal causes. They do not have a problem with wealthy donors , they just have a problem with where some of them are spending their money.

  I guess that explains why the IRS was only targeting conservative groups…

    Politicians may as well walk around wearing sandwich boards that say “For Sale to the Highest bidder”.

    The ‘lie enablers’ have their own rules, weights and measurements don’t they Steve.
    Just saw this: Obama Admin. Crams Over 1,200 New Regulations Just Before The New Year
    All a big ‘donkey show’ with the light, mirrors, smoke and flare while they push thru more restrictions, taxes and measures of control. Ugly parasites and hookworms.

      I saw that as well. Nothing like a long holiday weekend to push things through while people are distracted.

    As we suspected, noises are being made by Senator McConnell that a coalition of “moderate” Dems and GOpers can be formed to “get things done.” Sadly the getting things done is pork and payoff for contributors. The day the Omnibus bill passed, the twiitter had a list at Senate.Gov. Most of the Senators were listing the pork they were bringing home.

      I have read the same thing as well, very disheartening but expected from McConnell.
