7. Hillary said that there was no money in the DNC when she first ran

and had to put a ton in herself. No Dems denied this fact either. I forget where and who I heard it from (maybe Perez or Pelosi) but they are tying to help change that now. Money is a HUGE problem for Dems. How can we expect to run good candidates and campaigns without money? We can't. The grassroots efforts are always running an uphill battle under these circumstances.

Over 25% of my income goes towards paying for my ACA bills (and that is with subsidies) not including my meds and other out of pocket health expenses. I donate very small sums but am strapped so I volunteer and resist as much as I can but always feel guilty that it isn't enough. It is so frustrating on a personal level.
