    Romney’s wealthy tax cuts will keep absurd amounts of money flowing into Wall Street, so of course they’re contributing. What I find interesting is Obama’s contributors. DLA Piper is a big business law firm with varied services. I believe they do legal work for emerging renewable energy companies.
