5. Absolutely--you are entirely correct; the header at the top of the page says DCCC.

This is all about TAKING BACK CONGRESS. And it's a brilliant strategy, one that will resonate with people who grew up during the Depression, when no sum was scoffed at or seen as too picayune.

Maybe a person can't give fifty, or twenty five, or even ten, but most people could part with three bucks.

Baaaaaahbra knows who her target audience is; they're on fixed incomes, they share her POV, they want to help, but they're stressed and stretched too, to pay their own bills, to feed themselves, and to help out children and grandchildren.

Good for her. I'm glad someone gives a shit. I will say, even though I am not as enamoured of her 'musically' as many others are, that she puts her money, her time, her efforts, her energy and her celebrity where her mouth is--she is one of the best supporters of the "D" cause out there, and she always shows up to help when asked.
