How much longer will we tolerate the GOP and their fatcat donors stealing our democracy?

Speaking in her hometown of Chicago, the first lady asked donors to “dig deep” and help Democrats win in 2014, calling it her husband’s last election. 

“We need to be engaged right from the beginning and that’s where all of you come in,” Obama said at the event, where tickets ranged from $500 to special donations ranging from $10,000 to $20,000. “Because there is something you can do right now today to make a difference and that is to write a big fat check. I kid you not. I’m going to be honest with you. That’s what we need you to do right now. We need you to write the biggest fattest check that you can possibly write.”

It’s not enough the acting president spent his week shaking down big money donors, now his charming wife is in on the act.  At what point will their greed be sated?
