6. The DCC has out-raised the Repugs. That's part of it. But that money is transparent.
Unions representing millions of working Americans have also supported the Democrats. Likewise, we know the source of that money. Where the Repugs have an advantage is in the anonymous donations allowed by Citizens United. No one has any fucking idea where all that money is coming from, just as Roberts envisioned when he perjured himself before the Judiciary Committee.
But thanks for playing.
