In yet another fundraising appeal, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Caucus (DCCC) is calling for grassroots donors to renew their “membership” as supporters of the president by sending money to DCCC.

“If we can reach 25,000 new members supporting President Obama’s agenda before the year-end deadline, it will send a blistering message to Boehner and the Republicans,” the DCCC email says. “Will you chip in $3 to renew your 2013 membership?” Those who have not “chipped in” are reminded that their so-called membership is “pending.”

The DCCC promises to use the money to fight “mindless Republican obstruction.”

Here is the full email:

Name: Not Confirmed
Supporter record: 12009555
2013 Membership: Pending

Friend — If you’re planning to support President Obama’s second term agenda, then we need your support immediately.

Republicans in Congress have lined up to block any “Fiscal Cliff” deal with the White House. Now, middle class Americans could see their taxes increase by $2,000 on January 1st unless Boehner and the Republicans back down from their extreme stance. This mindless Republican obstruction has to stop.

Renew your membership — click this personalized link to make your contribution of $3 or more today.

Your donation will help us call out Republicans for putting millionaire tax breaks and corporate special interests before the middle class. If we can reach 25,000 new members supporting President Obama’s agenda before the year-end deadline, it will send a blistering message to Boehner and the Republicans.

Will you chip in $3 to renew your 2013 membership?
