Desperate Dems: DNC Debbie Reverses Obama Rule To Help Hillary Get More Money From PAC’s And Lobbyists

A new rule change at the DNC that now allows for contributuons from lobbyists and PAC’s is expected to boost the fundraising prospects of a battered and desperate Hillary Clinton as she fights off a huge surge of momentum from Vermont Senator and fellow Dem Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.

The rule change reverses an order that was put in place by President Obama in 2008…

According to the Washington Post:

“The Democratic National Committee has rolled back restrictions introduced by presidential candidate Barack Obama in 2008 that banned donations from federal lobbyists and political action committees.

The decision was viewed with disappointment Friday morning by good government activists who saw it as a step backward in the effort to limit special interest influence in Washington. Some suggested it could provide an advantage to Hillary Clinton’s fundraising efforts.

“It is a major step in the wrong direction,” said longtime reform advocate Fred Wertheimer. “And it is completely out of touch with the clear public rejection of the role of political money in Washington,” expressed during the 2016 campaign.

The change in the rules, already apparent to leading Washington lobbyists, was quietly introduced at some point during the past couple of months.”

  1. If with all the outside funding she already has and to be pay backs , why does she need more super pac money?? Makes me wonder what the national debit will be if the democrats win. Sanders is promising all free everything to get the children’s vote and Clinton’s for their own benefits at the price of America.

    • Generous Bernie can only spend his own money. Only the House of Representatives can spend Our money. Keep an eye on all those representatives we elected on their promises to choke off spending by the Obama administration. And, subsequently, Bernie Sanders/Hillary Clinton (an eventuality which must not arise). So far, adherence to promises is a totally alien concept to these lying expletives.

      • Very true! Her husband does not like her. I worry for the future seeing their daughter which i see as one of the most unattractive woman as K West competing on the lib ticket!! That is going to be interesting.

    • If Sanders or Hillary win it’ll be a disaster for the U.S. Our country is in a bad way now, but with either one of them at the helm, we’ll be dead in the water.

  2. Good grief, Carlie Brown, she’s still getting uglier. Soon, she will be right up there with Albright and Wasserman-Schultz.

    • I agree that it is a bad move for the Democrats. Obama had tried to make their fundraising less like that of the Republicans where donations and have to be re-paid through policy concessions, but as much as possible is kept secret. Now they will be not much better than Republicans. This was obviously done to help Hillary but she is not entitled to such help.

      To help the Brits understand:

      The USA has two main political parties. One (called the Republican), is like the Conservative party in the UK, and the other (called the Democratic), is like the UK Conservative party. (“Beyond the Fringe” Revue, 1961).

  3. This is no surprise, the DemocRATS always make/change rules for their benefit. If a Republican did that, the libs would be up in arms and fighting it. SMH!!!

    • your not reading this right. The rule was ONLY a dem rule not a rule for both parties. What is sad is the Rino’s never put the rule in the republican side. The rule was a good one. The only reason it was put in place in 2008 was that Obama didn’t need it and it helped block other dem candidates running against him.

  4. As a conservative I have to say this move makes me VERY happy. Eventually the fall will come around. I mean that figuratively and factually. The democrat congressional candidates will be needing money to fight off conservative candidates in the months of August, September and October. You know, the “FALL”. By then, Hillary will have spent it all and thus the figurative fall of the Democratic Party in congress. It is only a short matter of time before people like Debbie WShultz will really catch heck from all those faithful who she has left out of the party’s future. That’s when she will be gone. It’s to bad Pelosi isn’t going to be up for reelection. It could easily be her last. Alas, she isn’t so we will just have to wave good-bye to some others.

  5. They are pulling out all the stops to PROP Hilary’s Titanic Campaign up….First they had to steal super delegates from Bernie, now this. The Coronation isn’t going to well. She loses 60-40% in NH and gets more delegates than Bernie….Common Core Socialistic Math that, of all people Bernie spouts. How do you Bernie supporters feel now? You should be infuriated, p*ssed. Welcome to the Clinton Mob. They are ruining, I mean running the Party, Bernie is just a side show to them. Good luck.

  6. THE DEMOCRATS ARE LIKE OBAMA LYING COMES EASY TO THEM JUST TO GET IN OFFICE AND SCREW THE PEOPLE SOME MORE/ ELECT TRUMP
