When the ground's uneven, grown men stagger.
Politico has published an article titled "Angry GOP donors close their wallets," with the bold-faced kicker, " 'I’m sick and tired of nothing happening,' one contributor says of the party's legislative failures."
The article ropes in Sen. Thom Tillis, who oversees fundraising for the National Republican Senatorial Committee. Tillis told his colleagues at a recent conference meeting that donations had "fallen off a cliff after the Obamacare flop." The committee’s haul plummeted to just $2 million in July and August, less than half of what it raised in June.
As chaos rives the White House and stalemate infests Congress, the tectonic plates continue to build pressure.
