Remember all the times Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren warned that millionaires and billionaires were stealing America’s democracy? That rule doesn’t seem to apply to rich people who help advance the left’s agenda.
George Soros is dropping millions of dollars to campaign against President Trump.
The Daily Caller reports:
Soros Group Spent $10 MILLION On Lobbying In Last Three Months Of 2017 Alone
Left-wing mega-donor George Soros spent $10 million on lobbying in the last three months of 2017 alone, according to newly filed lobbying disclosures.
The Open Society Policy Center, the lobbying arm of Soros’s massive left-wing network, spent $10.3 million lobbying on 11 issues (all dealing with foreign policy) between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31, the report shows.
Three of the issues listed were bills introduced by Democrats in Congress meant to hamstring President Trump in his dealings with North Korea by withholding funds from any U.S. military action in North Korea without congressional approval.
The lobbying dealt with “provisions regarding withholding funds for any U.S. military action against North Korea unless authorized by Congress,” according to the disclosure. The bills, one in the House and two in the Senate, would prohibit the commander in chief from launching a preemptive first strike against North Korea.
This is exactly what the left constantly complains about. Where are their condemnations now?
