GOP Will Show Us the Money

GOP Super PACs and related groups are planning to spend $1 billion between now and November to fight for the White House and Congress.*  That’s not including Mitt’s campaign and the Republican National Committee, which expect to throw another $800 million into the pot.

Groups related to our friends the Koch Brothers, like Americans for Prosperity, had planned to spend $200 million, but, what the heck, they’ve decided to increase it to $400 million.  That money will be spent convincing Americans to vote against their own economic interests and for the interests of billionaires instead.  If you’re a middle class American, things do not go better with Koch.

Karl Rove’s groups American Crossroads and Crossroads GPS are expected to spend $300 million.  Now he’s an Evil Genius with overflowing coffers, definitely a dangerous combination.

Where does this leave President Obama and the Dems?  Outspent by two to one.

  1. No wonder there’s no money for important things like finding a cure for cancers, or education, or just about anything else in the world other than this political bullshit.
