How many $19 donations can fit into a Mike Bloomberg check?

Is this your brand on Milled? You can claim it.

Our campaign finance system is an absolute embarrassment.

Friends -

Let’s say Mike Bloomberg decided to spend just 1 percent of his obscene wealth in his quest to buy the presidency. That’d be around $500 million — a figure that is certainly possible.

Do you know how many Bernie Sanders donations it would take to match that, at an average donation of $19? The answer is more than 26 million donations.

That’s how preposterous this system of campaign finance is and how the deck is stacked against campaigns powered by working people and candidates without extreme wealth or connections.

But that is the fight we are now in, and so we have to ask:

Can you make a $2.70 contribution to our campaign today? We’re hoping for lots and lots of donations this weekend to fight back against the billionaires trying to buy our elections as candidates, or support Joe Biden’s super PAC.

Our campaign finance system is an absolute embarrassment. And when we are in the White House, that is going to change. But Bernie cannot do it alone. So THANK YOU for chipping in. Especially today.

All my best,

Faiz Shakir

In fact, there is no single greater source for our campaign's fundraising than emails like this one. And that's important, because no one person, not even Bernie Sanders, can take on Trump and the billionaire class alone.

I am writing to ask you to make a $2.70 contribution today. Especially today. Because Joe Biden’s super PAC is raising tons of money, ads are "imminent." So Bernie needs your help to fight back. Because he can’t do it alone. Link to give in the email. - Faiz

Michael Bloomberg is running for president as a Democrat. We need to respond in a BIG way to show the billionaire class can’t buy our elections. Can Bernie count on you to make a $2.70 donation?
