3. 'opting against giving money to ... super PACs

 

or television appearances to reinforce the (anti-trump) message'.

Why? Because those super PACs 'were already well funded', but his time round he is prepared to spend 'whatever it takes'. Follow the money.

4. wow.

 

The amount of hate for, even the wealthy by a few on our side is staggering. Mike spends huge amounts of money every cycle. He really ramped it up in VA this cycle taking on the NRA. He hasn't even declared as a candidate and people are jumping all over him. Im thsnkfully we have a few billuonaries on our side...

His surrogates saying he will spend whatever it takes, the likes of which we have never seen before. This is democracy? You betcha I'm upset.

6. Money out of elections.

 

Im so fucking tired of being told what i can/cant do by 1% of mostly men.

I really thought Bloomberg would put his money behind whoever wins the primary....i thought wrong. Hes gonna try to buy it himself.

8. What would you expect? Wall Street hates Warren and Sanders and Bloomy IS Wall Street

 

He made his $50+ Billion on the Street. Wiki says he was a Republican during most of the Bush era and an Independent during most of the Obama era. I guess he does what he needs to do to get what he wants.

I would not expect he or any other billionaire to go quietly when their tens of thousands of millions of dollars are on the line.

$Billionaires for Bloomy!
