    in an email from Joe Biden,  subj: "Subject: President Obama is counting on you", soliciting financial support for "the President's plan to reduce gun violence."

    Dear Mr. Vice President,

    Failure to get significant filibuster reform in the Senate, yesterday, means I was disrespected by the Democratic Party since they prefer to maintain personal power than to perform the actions to move this country forward in a democratic manner.

    When the filibuster and secret hold rules are removed from the Senate rules I may again reconsider financially supporting my party.

    Without a return to majority rule in the US Senate, Republican obstructionism is assured for the next 2 years, making gun safety legislation a remote possibility, at best.

    Enough! I've had it with losing battles that could have easily been won and cannot waste my money on supporting exercises in futility.

      DCCC have all taken me off their mailing lists.

      When contacted over the last few years I have responded that until the Democratic party agenda starts to remain true to it 's progressive platform; I will only provide financial support DIRECTLY to candidates I decide are worthy of my support.

      I contribute to candidates all over the country; just not through the Democratic party apparatus.
