    Outside spenders' return on investment! (Non-Partisan)

    I think we can all agree corporations are not people and we could have found way better things to do with almost 1 billion dollars that was spend doing this elections cycle!

    1.29% of $103,559,672 spent in the general election and ended in the desired result.
    Supported 0 winning candidates ; 0.00% of money went to supporting winning candidates.
    Opposed 2 losing candidates; 1.29% of money went to opposing losing candidates.

    DEMOCRATIC CONGRESSIONAL CAMPAIGN COMMITTEE
    39.17%

    We can't lose sight of the bigger victory, and that was over Citizens United aka unlimited corporate cash in elections. We will not be bought. Money is not free speech and a corporation is not a person. End Citizens United.

    Obama's Elite 758 corporate money came thru even better than 2008...

    http://www.opensecrets.org/pres12/bundlers.php
    Barack Obama's Bundlers
    Together, 758 elites are directing at least $180,100,000 for Obama's re-election efforts -- money that has gone into the coffers of his campaign as well as the Democratic National Committee..
    http://www.opensecrets.org/pres12/bu...286&cycle=2012
    63 registered lobbyists have bundled a total of $14,358,416 for Mitt Romney's presidential campaign. Additionally, we've identified another 37 bundlers undisclosed by Romney but identified from various press reports


    Republicans need to get organized and get their sides corporate money put directly into a candidate and party coffers so the money will be spent on adds with "I'm x and approve this" campaign adds instead of outside groups they don't have control over. And besides having greater domination and unililateral control over what's being said, apparently get rid of some of the effective negative rhetoric PR associatedwith the Citizens United 'outside' corporate money compared to 'inside' corporate money.
