Wall Street donors and bundlers plunged hundreds of millions of dollars into the GOPís effort to take back the White House and Senate this year ó and now some are threatening to cut off the spigot ahead of 2014 in the face of disappointing results.
New York donors have a list of complaints: Republicans focused too much on social issues, backed too many weak candidates, stalled Hurricane Sandy aid and even let taxes go up for the very rich ó in other words, the very people giving the money and their friends.
Thatís forced Senate Republicans ó led by Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) ó to scramble to assuage their top givers so that a moment of frustration doesnít lead to long-term defection.
The Republicans have proven themselves to be ineffectual losers while Obama and the Democrats have treated Wall Street to wonderful gifts and perks as well as turning a blind eye to restitution and justice.
What more could a corrupt galley of fat tycoons want?
