The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is hoping that fear will cause Democrats to donate money. The latest plea comes in an email with this subject line: "kiss all hope goodbye."
"Today, in a closed door meeting, Boehner announced he’s transferring $1,5OO,OOO.OO into Republican campaign coffers dedicated to growing the Tea Party majority," the opening of the email reads.
"This news could not come at a worse time. Earlier this month, Boehner authorized $3O,2OO,OOO.OO targeting top Democrats nationwide.
"Frankly, we weren't expecting to face this avalanche of Republican cash just days before the biggest midterm fundraising deadline so far this year.
"If we get crushed, we can kiss all hope of stopping Boehner goodbye.
"Right now, we need 5,000 supporters to step up to the plate today to keep pace. Will you help us get there?"

The email, which had the subject line "this has gotten out of control,"claims that the vote to repeal is "worthless," particularly because "a real repeal would actually COST money rather than save it."

Rep. Steve Israel, chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, is urging Democratic candidates to skip his party's national convention in September.
"If they want to win an election, they need to be in their districts," Israel reportedly said at a Reuters conference, according to Reuters.
"I don't care if the president was at 122 percent favorability right now," he said. "I think (candidates) should be in their districts," rather than spend time at the convention, which will be in Charlotte, North Carolina, September 3-6.

Heritage Action, a political arm of the Heritage Foundation, has released a response video, depicting children scrounging for money to pay for unfunded entitlement liabilities. Take a look:
