5. The 47% paid for both campaigns. Most of Pres. Obama's campaign

was directly paid by small donations from the 47%. Defeated candidate Rmoney's campaign was paid mostly by a few mega-million dollar donations from the 1%, who will re-capture that expense by raising prices on the goods and services sold to the captive market (= us, the 47%). Don't think that the rich took a bath in this election. Even by winning just 1% of the races they targeted, the rich won by winning by getting us to pay for those campaigns.
