Hillary’s PAC has $92.5 million in its coffers
Or perhaps the liberals have spent a decade demonizing the Koch brothers in order to distract the public from the fact that the evil twins are 59th on the list of political doors from 1989-2014, with a total of $18 million.
So who occupies the 58 spots ahead of the Evil Koch Bros? Six of the top 10 are … wait for it … unions. They gave more than $278 million, with most of it going to Democrats.
These are familiar names: AFSCME ($60.6 million), NEA ($53.5 million), IBEW ($44.4 million), UAW ($41.6 million), Carpenters & Joiners ($39.2 million) and SEIU ($38.3 million).
In other words, the six biggest union donors in American politics gave 15 times more to mostly Democrats than the Evil Koch Bros.
Wall Street and Act Blue, too
Three of the remaining four slots in the top 10 were taken by AT&T ($56.4 million), National Association of Realtors ($51.2 million) and Goldman Sachs ($44.8 million).
In addition to funding Republicans, the boys gave $25 million to the United Negro College Fund in 2014, and $150 million to Sloan Kettering Cancer center in 2015. Donations to “The Clinton Fund” are used to support and maintain a campaign staff for the lady. For the Clintons, charity begins at home – and ends there.

Tried forwarding this to Burner but he refused. Figured unions could pay for all tuitions …
Well, if it came from Chelsea Clinton, then you heard it straight from the horse’s mouth.
Now THAT’S funny!!
Great to see National Association of Realtors represent at $51 million !!
Not to mention the local organizations like Greenwich Association of Realtors taking our dues and stuffing it in the pockets of our state legislators.
Unfortunately, even a glimmer of reality has no influence upon many lefties.
The Koch brothers align far more with many of the beliefs of lefties than the Clintons do. Yet – they demonize the former and worship the latter.
Thank you for posting that.
