The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee announced on Friday that it raised $8.4 million in September, a record monthly haul for the committee.

The fundraising haul brings the DCCC’s total cash on hand to $21.6 million, double the amount of cash it had at the same point last year, according to a DCCC aide.

The government shutdown fueled a large portion of the committee’s fundraising this cycle, per the aide. About $2 million of the record-breaking haul came from online donations following GOP Sen. Ted Cruz’s filibuster.

The National Republican Congressional Committee has not released its September fundraising tally yet, according to an aide.

    “The Democrats have raised nearly $40 million, but remain more than $18 million in debt and had only $3.6 million cash on hand at the end of August. ”

      Yeah, Republicans just wasted another $24 BILLION of the taxpayer’s money with their government shut down. That’s ON TOP OF the MILLIONS they wasted in fighting against Obamacare some 44 times after it was already LAW.

    While many collectivist demands arise from nothing but the anti-social passion of envy, gratifying envy by cloaking it under the veil of “social justice” has become a grave threat to liberty.

      1/6th of our population uninsured, the wealth gap reaching historical highs, and the wealthy continuing to gain income at the cost of every other income bracket for the past 30 years which accelerated under trickle down culminating to the greatest recession since the great depression, is one hell of a “veil”.

  • Benjamin Dover

    There’s no serious difference between today’s liberals and their socialist, marxist, and communist ancestors.

    • yourFriend20

      Except that today’s liberals in America are actually centrists upon the political spectrum. But yea other than that no dofference at all!


      Yeeah, lets not explain what happen which is typical of a Reichtie isn’t it?

      Trillions spent on a war of lies.. Only for you to feel all warm and fuzzy about being patriotic on the backs of the 4,000 plus Soldiers that died..

      Yeeah, btw, where is that 12 Billion Taxpayer’s Dollars that Dubya sent to Iraq without a paper trail and lost???..

      Yeah, the fact that you and the rest of the minions of the Reich caused the meltdown of 2008 with your greed..

      Reichtie’s = lies!!!

  • Liberalism is Nonsense

    Liberty and free markets free us from the shackles of collective agreement that bound bands of our ancestors to their primitive instincts.

    • CherMoe

      And animals have better instincts than Republicans, obviously.

  • Liberalism is Nonsense

    Liberals are animals, more or less.


      Yeah, Reichtie’s such as yourself are proof that when 2 people get together a blooming idiot is born!!!!

  • Sam Gompers

    Democrats are on the rise. Freedom and Liberty are on the wane.

  • disqus_sAcqiPnrzq

    The GOP Government shutdown cost the American taxpayers 24 Billion Dollars. This from the party of fiscal responsibility? It was a total waste of time and money.

    Tea Party is destroying America. America again nearly defaulted and it has cost America jobs and higher interest rates. It is time to get rid of the Tea Party for the good of America. Tea Party is doing serious damage to the country. They are anarchists and Traitors.
