From the Washington Post, and the subject of much comment online today:
"Democratic political committees have seen a decline in their fundraising fortunes this year, a result of complacency among their rank-and-file donors..."
Complacency? I think a better word for what we are feeling might be fury. Fury at being betrayed by Obama and congressional Democrats. Fury at having given everything we could to a pack of liars who seem to be getting ready to hand the insurance companies a colossal, gigantic victory, and call it health care reform. Fury at paying Democrats for what we could have gotten for free from Republicans. Fury, in the end, at being cheated out of what we worked so hard to achieve, by people we trusted.
Prove us wrong, Barack, and the money will come back. Prove us right, and screw you.
