As I was working on this issue of the Report, I was reminded that Charles and David Koch had been financing a large part of the Tea Party Movement. I wonder how many of our readers even know who these two men are? First, let’s look at their business operations. Koch Industries is an international conglomerate that is not only the second largest private company in this country, but it is the most politically active. To say they are extremely powerful on the national scene from a political perspective is grossly understating their influence. The Koch brothers, Charles and David, have been heavy contributors to the Tea Party movement in the U.S. They have skillfully used the Tea Party to push their political and economic agendas.
Over the past three years, Koch groups have spent tens of millions of dollars to influence government policy. It has also been reported that these groups have financed junk academic studies to accomplish their goals. The interesting thing is that ordinary folks don’t have a clue who the Koch brothers really are. If they did, I suspect they would be greatly concerned that any two private citizens could have such tremendous influence over what happens in the daily lives of U.S. citizens. Both are said to be life-long Libertarians who follow that party’s extreme positions on government to the letter.
