This from the Christian Science Monitor: GOP donors close checkbooks, urging stronger action on health care reform COLORADO SPRINGS—At least one influential donor has informed congressional Republicans that the "Dallas piggy bank" is closed until he sees major action on health care and taxes. Texas-based donor Doug Deason has already refused to host a fundraiser for two members of Congress and informed House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R) of California his checkbook is closed as well. "Get Obamacare repealed and replaced, get tax reform passed," Mr. Deason said in a pointed message to GOP leaders. "You control the Senate. You control the House. You have the presidency. There's no reason you can't get this done. Get it done and we'll open it back up." GOP Donors Threaten Congress: No Tax Cuts, No Money Yahoo is now reporting that big name GOP donors are cutting off donations to Republicans until they see "major action on healthcare and taxes." ------------------------------------- It's all about money. Move it from the poor and the middle class to the top 1%. But this has been the GOP Plan for decades. Remember the Bush Tax Cuts?
