Received the following request for money from the state's House Democrats today, it had the subject line of "Shameful" and it is..... Shameful on the part of the sender. It's a pathetic manipulation, trying to get an emotional knee-jerk reaction out of you against those eeeeevvvvvviiiiiiillllllll millionaire GOP donors. Both parties have millionaire donors, email fund solicitor Mike Frosolone forgot to mention that. Oh, and where are the substantive examples that school funding is *broken*? You should reject the premise.
Something else Frosolone forgot to mention..... The Democrats want a 4% funding increase. The Republicans have proposed a 2% increase. Looks like a 3% compromise is going to happen, with Democrat State Senators Gronstal and Dvorsky publicly indicating such a compromise is in the works. So this little fundraising request by the House Democrats and Mike Frosolone is an excuse, a means to an end (there's your eeeevvvviiiillllll ) not reality. It's a blatant manipulation. There's no funding crisis, there's a bi-partisan funding INCREASE in the works!

Unfortunately, the GOP has a group of millionaire donors who can cut huge checks to their re-election campaigns -- and help rewrite history.
