“We spent every last penny we had in 2012 (and then some),”  Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), the Democratic National Committee Chair tells DNC supporters in an email, Craig Bannister writes at CNS News:

Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) says Democrats are “in the red” because they spent more than “everything we had” to get Barack Obama and others elected last November.

In an e-mail to supporters, the DNC chair says:

“We spent everything we had to spend in 2012 to win the White House, add seats in the Senate, and pick up seats in the House — our job was to do everything we could to elect President Obama and other Democrats across the country.”

“We spent every last penny” – and more – Wasserman Schultz says:

“The cardinal sin in campaigns is to sit on money — which is why we spent every last penny we had in 2012 (and then some) to make sure the election went our way.”

As a result, she says “Democrats are in the White House – but we are also in the red.”

After a century of “Progressivism,” and since late 2008, a giant Big Gulp of even more spending in supersized proportions that even Nanny Bloomberg can’t ban, as Mark Steyn likes to say, we’re the brokest nation in history, as we arrive at what former Reagan budget director dubs “End-Stage Metastasis.” No reason why the party that got us there shouldn’t be equally kleptocratic when it comes to managing its own purse strings.
