Koch Money Buys A Lot of Political Power


by Mary

Climate Progress has posted an Al Jazeera mini-documentary on the Koch Brothers and their influence on our politics. It is definitely required viewing for anyone who wants to understand what the power of money buys today.

Scariest point in the video? When Lee Fang talked about how the billion dollars the re-elect Obama effort plans to raise could be swamped by what the Koch brothers can bring all by themselves. After all they increased their personal wealth by a cool $11 billion in the past two years. The question then is how much will they pour into getting their candidate elected. And no disclosure needed courtesy of the corrupt Supreme Court decision.
