Tea Party Patsy

There have been several very informative articles over the last couple of months about the influence that the Koch brothers have in our present political climate. From funding “astroturf” Tea Bag groups to “think tanks” that invent findings opposing government regulations that will hurt their profitability, we find that the interests and efforts of the Koch brothers are working directly in opposition to our democracy. Here’s a piece that focuses on their ties to the John Birch Society and Scott Walker, and here is an article about their campaign contributions to Scott Walker, and you can find another great article about how Walkers’ efforts to bust the unions in Wisconsin are tied to a larger plan here. This article from the NYT is also worth reading.
