The Hill is pretty gleeful that a billionaire that used to give millions to Republicans is now giving to Democrats as a hedge against Trump.
A billionaire hedge fund manager and former major GOP donor is tearing into Republicans, saying he is planning to use money from the GOP tax cuts to elect Democrats.
“I received a tax cut I neither need nor want,” Seth Klarman told The Boston Globe.
“I’m choosing to invest it to fight the administration’s flawed policies and to elect Democrats to the Senate and House of Representatives.”
Klarman said Republicans in Congress have failed to hold President Trump accountable. He added that GOP lawmakers have “abandoned their historic beliefs and values.”
“For the good of the country, the Democrats must take back one or both houses of Congress,” he said.
According to the Globe, Klarman has given about $222,000 to 78 Democrats running for Congress since the 2016 elections.
This is very weird to me because it seems like tax cuts are about the only conservative thing Republicans have actually stuck to in decades. In any case, the Hill says that he gave $7 MILLION to Republicans during Obama’s term.
