To have stated the Fact(s) correctly, you would have had to say..."IN" the year 2000, 27 million went to Repubs and 14 million went to Dems.
But your point, I assume was to be that "since" the year 2000, Repbulicans have had 54 million dollars more contrubuted to their party. (rounded off to the million)
And likewise to defend Hew equally...he, I would assume was refering to CURRENT contributions and there he is accurate that in the year 2009 Democrates have had the larger amount of contributions...
Typical, really it is...for the current pulse of the nation to want to look at the past...when it is more prudent to watch the HERE AND NOW!!!!!
