The ONE BILLION dollar campaign
Where is this money going to come from?

The unemployed?
The family facing bank foreclosure eviction?
The family saddled with medical debt?
The college student with loans up to their eyeballs?
The union worker forced to take another round of pension cuts?

OR:

The Corporation who made obscene profits yet paid no taxes?
The Banks.
The CEOs.
K-Street.
Koch Industry front groups?

Just how do they plan to raise 1 billion dollars for 2012?!

:shrug:

1. That and the people that don't keep up with current events. They just get persuaded to contribute
because they like the guy.

6. We could easily give a billion in public financing to both parties.
we spend that much on war every week.

It could be called stimulus funding.

7. The vast majority of which would go to media conglomerates.
Without access to free media, we're screwn.

9. Only thing I know for sure is none will come from me.
