One of the most outspoken proponents of shutting the government down to defund Obamacare has been Jim DeMint’s cronies at the Senate Conservatives Fund, and it turns out they’ve raked in quite a lot of money convincing their dimwitted constituents that they’re contributing to the cause.
WASHINGTON — The Senate Conservatives Fund, a political action committee connected to Heritage Foundation President Jim DeMint, raised its largest-ever monthly total for a non-election year this August while running a campaign pressuring Republican senators and representatives to defund Obamacare.
The PAC raised more than $1.5 million in August, according to its Federal Election Commission filing, with $1.3 million of that sum coming from small donors giving under $200 each. The small-donor haul is the largest-ever monthly small-donor total brought in by the Senate Conservatives Fund.
In the end Obamacare will survive. It’s not going away. And the Senate Conservatives Fund will walk away with $1.5 million dollars. Suckers. I don’t feel the least bit sorry for anyone who donated.
It’s good to be on wingnut welfare.
