Sounds like we need to kick out as many Democrats as possible in the next election. That’s the only way to keep these assholes from doing what they promise to do if they are returned to Congress. Donors to the GOP, or against the Democrats would be harmed otherwise. Typical leftist crap.

Democrats must be having a pretty bad fundraising season, on K Street as well as everywhere else. Normally, a party with a good shot at holding power would expect big-ticket donors to flock to their outside groups and drop lots of money in order to curry favor. This year, though, Democrats have abandoned a strategy of attracting donors in favor of threatening them, Politico reports:
Democrats on K Street are warning their corporate clients: Give to Republican challengers in the 2012 election, and you’ll regret it come tax reform time.
Lobbyists are getting that message from allies of powerful Democrats such as Senate Finance Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont.), who is closely watching support for Rep. Denny Rehberg, a Republican challenging Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.). Baucus supporters fear that if Rehberg ousts Tester, Baucus could be next to face a serious Republican challenge in the state.
One K-Streeter close to the Baucus operation said the senator considers a gift to Rehberg a contribution against him. Another Democratic lobbyist told a client to take his name off a Rehberg fundraising event because it would be hurtful to his company, according to sources.
The case K-Streeters are making to their clients: It will be a hard sell next year to get Baucus’s support on business-friendly tax perks set to expire or the Bush-era tax cuts that must get through his committee.
Hmmm. Is that how policy gets made in the era of Hope and Change? Correct answer — of course! It’s pretty much how both parties fundraise off of K Street, by warning of the dire consequences of letting the other party take control of Congress and/or the White House. Normally that gets framed in the context of the opposition’s platform, not personal payback for picking the wrong side. This sounds a little more explicit than one would normally expect, but it’s really the same message, packaged in slightly different form.
