Recently, a group called the Democracy Alliance met in Chicago. The group consisted of billionaire democrats, and democratic politicians.
Their purpose? To plan their strategy for 2014 and 2016. How can they do it? With the support of the billionaires, of course.
Is this legal? Yes. Do republicans do it? I hope so.
But, here is the problem - when billionaire republicans do it, Harry Reid stands on the senate floor and calls it "UN-American."
So, let's get this straight - when billionaire democrats meet with their favorite politicians to influence policy (and they have! Ever heard of the keystone pipeline?) that is ok. But, when billionaire republicans (specifically the Koch brothers) spend their money it is UN-American.
That is hypocrisy.
