The GOP really is the party of, by, and for the 1%

Now strategists and donors are going where the money’s going, and growing evidence suggests that this election year — not just on the presidential level, but also for congressional races — will be dominated by superPACs. Right now, more than 80 percent of the money raised by superPACs has gone to pro-GOP groups. And, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, 80 percent of all the money raised by these groups has come from just 100 individuals — the wealthiest people in America. People like Texas billionaire Harold Simmons.
