    Just 47 people account for more than half (57.1 percent) of the $230 million raised by super PACs from individual donors, according to the study by U.S. Public Interest Research Group (U.S. PIRG) and Demos, two liberal research and advocacy organizations. Just over 1,000 donors giving $10,000 or more were responsible for 94 percent of the money raised.

    They calculate that it would take 321,000 middle-income families, donating an equivalent share of their wealth (0.15 percent), to match the Adelsons' giving.

    Super PAC donations: Small group, a big dent

    Do Middle Class Republicans feel that someone like Sheldon who has tens of billions of dollars share their "interests and needs".

    The other question is "Are there any Middle Class Republicans"? If so, why do they vote against their own self interests?

    So if they lose they pissed away a lot of rich people's money. Seems like a flawed investment strategy to me.

    They will OWN Mittens.

    What the hell, they OWN him now.

    Never mind pub and pots. Norquist is thrilled, Sheldon has his casinos in CHINA and Trump still has all the answers for the birther idiots.

    Of interest is that most of President Obama's donations are $250 or less. True grass roots as opposed to rw's selling out their country.

    Yes I am thrilled that at least 47 rich people care that much about this country.

    No doubt democrats are equally as thrilled that a handful of rich hollywood stars and New York socialites think that much of obama.

    It's not the fault of republicans that obama is not able to support his campaign. He got plenty of money. He just pissed it away at such a rate, with nothing to show for it, that even his richest donors are tired of supporting his has-been ass.

    It should make you happy to see all that rich people money being dumped back in to the economy. After all, it's Democrats like you that are always whining that the rich should give more. :eusa_whistle:

    That's going to be the nice thing about electing Romney. He has plenty of his own money and won't need to be selling the citizens out to special interests.

    hey Deanie... got the numbers on the Libtard Super pack contributions?

    Of course not, because if they are similar, you'll look the other way.

    Dumb ass

    Stop throwing feces at Republicans when Democrats do the same thing, rdean.
