House election committees add millions to coffers

Washington (CNN) – The Republican and Democratic fundraising organizations in charge of electing party members to the House of Representatives each raised over $9 million in March, the two groups announced on Tuesday.

The National Republican Congressional Committee brought in $9.3 million last month, ending the period with $27.1 million in the bank.

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee raised $9.8 million during the same time and currently has $22.8 million cash on hand with no campaign debt.

The Democratic reserve represents the strongest position for the DCCC at this point in a cycle since 2002, the national fundraising arm said.

Democrats would need to capture 25 seats currently held by Republicans in November to win back control of the lower chamber.

    These funds are almost meaningless in an era with Citizens United and superPACs.

    Why pay taxes to a government that squanders more money in a day then I'll make in a lifetime. Their " Good Old Boy" mentality is also their demise. Most of Americans that don't pay taxes need the money to live for the most part. I personally have a disability and was denied benefits because I did not pay my taxes for the past three years, hell I barely had an income but all the welfare mongers that drive Escalades with 20" rims get benefits and food stamps and I can't qualify because of my tax problem and my wife works. So, pay taxes to this system HELL NO, send me to jail and they the government can support my illness.

    Still not a word on CNN, NBC, CBS, ABC, MSNBC, NY times or WP or any other liberally biased mainstream media about the hypocrisy of Debby Wasserman Schultz shrilly calling for Romney to release his tax returns while refusing for years to realease her own. Does anyone in CNN fantasy land get the idea of how the liberally biased media covers for democrat liberal hypocrisy?

    The November election is a good time to send a message to "pledge takers" and Tea Party lap dogs. They played around with political games and allowed our S&P bond rating to fall. They produced not one single bill to provide jobs or to help the middle class. Throw them out!
