Mitt Romney wasn't the only one who raked in the donations after the Supreme Court deemed President Obama’s health-care legislation constitutional. Excited by the survival of President Obama’s health-care overhaul, 65,000 Democrats donated an average of $35 each since last Thursday. Saturday was the biggest fundraising day ever for House Democrats. They’ve raised a total of $2.3 million since the ruling last week, according to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

Can you help us out?

For 17 years we have been exposing Washington lies and untangling media deceit, but now Facebook is drowning us in an ocean of right wing lies. Please give a one-time or recurring donation, or buy a year's subscription for an ad-free experience. Thank you.
