Donors Are Paying $500,000 for Access to President Obama, According to New York Times Report

President Obama’s campaign apparatus ‘Obama for America’ recently reinvented itself as a political group called Organizing for Action, and that group is literally selling access to the president!

According to the New York Times, for $500,000 you can schedule face-to-face meetings with President Obama at the White House!

“It is such hypocrisy. It was also something that I think if the Bush administration had come up with, the counsel’s office would have said you’re a lunatic, get out of here,” Dana Perino said during a debate on The Five.

Andrea Tantaros agreed, saying, “This is unprecedented lobbying, I think. And it appears like the president is for sale. And again, it points to the two classes, and it’s not just the rich and the poor. It’s the connected and the non-connected.”

Watch the rest of the debate and let us know what you think!
