• The DNC Is Broke And Wants Taxpayers To Pay Millions For Their 2016 Convention

    DNC Chair and Florida Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz wants a taxpayer handout to fund the 2016 DNC convention.

    The Democratic National Committee reportedly wallowing in staggering debt and needs to come up with 15 to $20 million to hold next summer’s nominating convention.

    From The Washington Examiner:

    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.

    The Congressional Budget Office revealed the move in a letter released Friday, which said Ms. Wasserman Schultz’s proposal to tap a presidential campaign fund would likely mean each party could get about $20 million in taxpayer money to help with costs.

    The Republican National Committee in, contrast, has said it doesn’t condone using taxpayer funds in this way and has adequate funding its convention next year.

    “We support no taxpayer funding as long as there’s an alternate way for us to raise the funds to mount a successful convention,” RNC spokeswoman Allison Moore said in an email.

    Why should conservatives foot the Democrat party’s bill for their campaign? With all those billionaire celebrity buddies Democrat politicians have, you’d think Tom Hanks, Michael Moore, Speilberg, Lucas, Bono, Ford, Zuckerberg, Bill Gates and Soros would be more than willing to give to their own party.

    All these leftist elites could easily cover the Democrat’s convention costs from chump change they have laying around and there’s tons of leftist celebs and rich snobs that could be added to that list.

    I guess it’s not so easy to be generous with your own money, aye lefties?
