2014 will be the most expensive midterm election ever

2014 will be the most expensive midterm election ever | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
The biggest growth area? Outside group spending.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Both sides are spending big....But who is investing and what are they expecting? How much did you invest and what do you think you will get for your investment? Nothing for nothing? Please Vote! Voting is a wise investment and can take on the biggest spenders without spending a dime. Just look past the big money ads and do your own homework. These big spenders aren't paying to have these people work for you and most of the biggest money is coming from a small group of very extremely wealthy individuals that intend to continue to redistribute everyone's resources and wealth into their pockets and control.


Excerpt:

That spending, as they note, does not include nonprofit 501(c)(4) groups like the Koch brothers-aligned Americans for Prosperity, which have spent heavily on the election. "Overall, it’s likely that at least $100 million in spending is not being counted, and that money leans distinctly to the right, records filed with the Federal Communications Commission indicate. If that’s an accurate estimate, any advantage the liberal outside spending groups have over conservative ones will be washed away by Election Day," reads the memo.
