Super PAC’ Raises $15.6 Million for Hillary Clinton Campaign

The “super PAC” supporting Hillary Rodham Clinton will report that it has raised $15.6 million when it files its disclosure statements, officials with the group said Thursday morning, with donations from big names like George Soros, the liberal philanthropist, and the Hollywood moguls Steven Spielberg and Jeffrey Katzenberg.

Guy Cecil, the group’s chief strategist and co-chairman who recently took control of the “super PAC,” called Priorities USA Action, after an organizational shake-up, said that $12.5 million had been raised in the last four weeks. The total amount reported is for the first six months of the year.

Even with the recent surge in fund-raising, the amount is far less than the $100 million that Jeb Bush, a Republican candidate, is expected to report he has raised through various entities.

“It may seem early to many of us, but with the amount of money pouring in from the far right wing, the time has come for our side to kick things into high gear,” Mr. Cecil said. “We have a lot of work to do in the months ahead, but we are starting to see some real momentum.”

1. Yet people are starving in the street.

While the elitist dont pay their taxes and buy our politicians. Disgusting waste of money when there are people that truly need it.

2. And due to wealth inequality

political influence is becoming cheaper and cheaper to buy, we should feed and cloth the poor, plus provide training, health care and housing before we ever fire another missile. Republicans never ask how to pay for another war, only who will pay for permanent healthcare for 9-11 first responders.
