Democrat Money Grab Targets Big Corporations

Ever wonder how Public Statements and Political Positioning correlate to the silent Money that support Politicians who publicly condemn industry like Wall Street, Banking and Energy.

The list below demonstrate huge hypocrisies or disparities with public statements and positioning of the Democratic Party and associated Political Groups like the DNC, DCCC and Government “PACs”.

The industry’s they condemn most are highlighted below with a sample list of corporations targeted for Political Donations. Putting it in context of Politicians, it’s usually “One Hand Washes The Other” [insert link to Pay-for-Play]. Not so uncommon, corporations that donate would like to influence their particular Interest too. So, they choose the Party and Politicians they can influence.

The first group we noticed are all Big Government Contractors targeted by the DCCC. They’re not household names and easily overlooked but they hold Special Interest and deep Congressional connections. Equally, most involve defense technologies – the stuff we don’t want to know about unless we’re a geek.


  • BAE Systems
  • Boeing
  • Honeywell
  • Lockheed
  • Northrop Grumman
  • Raytheon
  • United Technologies

 The most important group targeted by Democrat Politicians are Financial based! These are the types of corporations Democrat Politicians complain about publicly as a smoke screen, making a superficial showing for voters while taking money from the industry. The list is so broad it crosses multiple industries that include Wall Street, Banks and Insurance Companies.


  • Chicago Board Options Exchange
  • Depository Trust And Clearing Corporation
  • Investment Company Institute
  • Securities Industry And Financial Markets Association
  • Bankers Association
  • Capital One
  • Citigroup
  • CME Group
  • Ernst & Young
  • HSBC North America
  • Pinnacle West Capital
  • SunTrust Bank
  • UBS
  • US Bancorp
  • Wells Fargo 

Besides mortgage ownership and internal real estate investments within the Banking Industry, Insurance Companies may be the biggest owners of Commercial Real Estate in America.

The names may include “Insurance” and “Mutual” but make no mistake, Insurance Companies are among America’s Biggest Financial Institutions next to Wall Street Investment Firms and Banks. Add the Governments’ Health Insurance Industry take-over and we’ll likely find Washington Politicians in bed with many more insurance companies. 

  • Anthem
  • Cigna
  • Humana
  • Liberty Mutual
  • MetLife
  • Massachusetts Mutual
  • Nationwide Mutual
  • Prudential Financial
  • Pacific Life
  • State Farm
  • United Health Group
  • Zurich Holdings

Another industry Democrats are so publicly and vocally opposed to is Energy, Oil and Gas, etc.. Excluding the Renewable Energy companies Obama Funded with $4B in taxpayer dollars that started failing before his first term was over. Strangely, as Democrat Politicians publicly oppose Energy Companies like Financials, Democrats receive hundreds of millions, possibly billions in donations from the Energy Industry too. 

  • DTE Energy
  • Duke Energy
  • Ecolab Inc (energy)
  • Murray Energy
  • Valero Energy

All the companies listed above were money targets of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC). See the list on TARP, DNC and Clinton Campaign for more detailed information about financial support and donations to Democrats made by Corporate and Financial Special Interest.
