Obama ended April with $115 million in bank

(CNN) - President Barack Obama's campaign ended the month of April with over $115 million in the bank, federal campaign filings posted Friday showed.

The campaign had $115,157,432.79 cash on hand after raising $25.7 million that month. Combined with other Democratic efforts, including the Democratic National Committee, they raised $43.6 million in April, slightly more than the $40.1 million GOP candidate Mitt Romney and his allies raised. Romney ended the month with $104 million cash on hand.

But Obama's campaign did report debt: $1,200 owed to a Nebraska company for telemarketing.

    No doubt that a lot of it came from the racist and anti feminist groups that are so prominent in the democrat liberal party. We know that poverty pimps like the Reverands Al and Jesse who are making millions off the Trayvon Martin case did not contribute, they kept the money to fund their lavish life styles and have been remarkably silent on the latest developments in that case as has the most incompetent, inept, corrupt, union toady president in history, after they of course shot off their mouths and incited more problems, as usual.

    Why don't we really fix the debt. And economy at one time. All this$$ they raise can fix this problem. Give all workers that pay taxes a million$ and have them send in there bills and pay every thing off. Then the banks and loan companies would get there $ back and us workers would be clear of debt. And what is left we can help the economy by buying the companies product. And it would only cost us about 200 million. Not rocket science. The companies and wall street can take there lose after we pay back what we as workers owe.
