The Democrat National Committee (DNC) is facing a cash crunch. There are a lot of reasons for this, mostly having to do with the way Obama’s personal fundraising apparatus has vacuumed large quantities of cash that would have made its way to the DNC. And, then there is DNC chairwoman, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, mad interpersonal skills which makes people want to shoot themselves in the face rather than deal with her. The cash shortage is pretty severe, at their last report the Democrat party had $4.7 million cash on hand and $6.9 million in debt — thereby serving as a worthy metaphor for how they run any organization they control.

To close that gap, they want the taxpayers to pay for their party. Again, an apt metaphor for the way they operate.

Already struggling with finances, the Democratic Party has drafted a plan to have taxpayers help pay about $20 million for next summer’s nominating convention, reversing a change Congress approved just a year ago.

Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who is also a congresswoman from Florida, has drafted a bill to restore money that both parties used to receive from the federal government to help defray the costs of running their quadrennial conventions.

The Congressional Budget Office revealed the move in a letter released Friday, which said Ms. Wasserman Schultz’s proposal to tap a presidential campaign fund would likely mean each party could get about $20 million in taxpayer money to help with costs.

There is no reason that taxpayers should be on the hook for a political party’s convention, especially when the convention is not even necessary to nominate a candidate. Deep pocket Democrats like Bill Gates and Elon Musk and Michael Bloomberg and Mark Zuckerberg and Jeff Bezos could take the rounding error when they balance their checkbooks and pay for it if it is so important.
