President Obama donated $5,000 to his reelection campaign. According to Politico it was a symbolic gesture.
In an email to supporters this morning, Obama said that he had given to his own reelection campaign for the first time as a symbolic gesture.
“On its own, what I gave won’t be enough to surmount the unprecedented fundraising we’ve seen on the other side, both from our opponent’s campaign and from the outside groups and special interests supporting him,” Obama wrote. “But we have always believed that there’s nothing we can’t do when we all pitch in. That includes me.”
Does that mean he’ll start paying a higher tax rate, as a symbolic gesture, to show that he’s pitching in?
