The only kind of numbers any House Republican in Congress seems to care about these days is what they can do to raise the numbers of dollars they can squeeze out of donors and corporate lobbyists. Meanwhile, Democratic Congresspeople and challengers have been counting the small individual donations made on the internet…all the way to the bank. Democratic House members have *already* raised more cash in 2017 than they were able to raise in all of 2015! $20 Million dollars has been donated, averaging $18 per donation. Republican House members have also broken 2015 records, taking in $1.7 Million dollars in the first months of 2017.
