Democrat Politicians Begin To Fight Back Against The Koch Brothers
This editorial in the NYT describes some of the speeches by Democrats that tell the public what they stand for. The Senate Majority Leader made that very clear. His speech on the Senate floor described the Koch brothers as oligarchs who are spending millions to turn our government into a country that primarily benefits oligarchs. The Koch brothers own the 14th most polluting industrial plants in America and they pay off GOP politicians so that they can pass the cost of their toxic waste on to taxpayers. One of their ad campaigns is described as a defense against the war that the government is conducting against coal. They have also been spending millions on ads that make false claims about the Affordable Care Act. The GOP's campaign in 2014 will be built around protecting Americans from the ACA.
