Forum Post: Koch Brother Brags About Helping Walker

"We're helping him, as we should. We've gotten pretty good at this over the years," he told the Palm Beach Post over the weekend. "We've spent a lot of money in Wisconsin. We're going to spend more."

According to the Wisconsin Democracy Project, the Koch-funded Americans for Prosperity, along with another group, spent $1.1 million on three TV ads for Walker in the fall and spent an additional $700,000 earlier this month on another ad buy. http://www.progressive.org/koch_brother_brags_about_helping_walker.htm

"A Few Americans For Our Own Prosperity at the Expense of Everyone Else" is more like it.

[-] 3 points by GirlFriday (17435) 9 years ago

This is exactly what it is about.

Gee, where are all those Tea Party folks that want unification? I can't see them anywhere.......

[-] 3 points by beautifulworld (23474) 9 years ago

The Tea Party is over. LOL!

[-] 2 points by GirlFriday (17435) 9 years ago

YES!!!!

[-] 2 points by beautifulworld (23474) 9 years ago

LOLOL!

they are in Wash D.C. and state capitals impacting policy , which is the next logical step. Can't be stuck protesting forever.

[-] 4 points by beautifulworld (23474) 9 years ago

Impacting policies in what way? Not my way. Not the way that is best for the majority of Americans in my opinion.

[-] -3 points by tomahawk99 (-26) 9 years ago

that's why its called a democracy. What do you think Occupy is trying to do?

[-] 3 points by beautifulworld (23474) 9 years ago

Fair enough. We'll see who wins in the end. We should at least all come together to get money out of politics. Agreed?

[-] 0 points by tomahawk99 (-26) 9 years ago

now we are talking. i'm a conservative but agree with some of Occupy's points. I listen, and i decide which policies, i think , in my humble opinion are best for me, my family and country.

[-] 1 points by beautifulworld (23474) 9 years ago

Nice.

In support of that as well as cleaning up legislation. Getting rid of earmarks etc.

Thanks, DKAtoday. We should all be able to agree on this one huge thing.

[+] -4 points by DKAtoday (33802) from Coon Rapids, MN 9 years ago

Yep. Forget party politics or party leanings or anything else that works to divide us. We should be beyond that crap and be uniting under common cause. Leave politics out of it.

So, he's saying corrupting the American political system has become routine for them. Another reason for a very high marginal tax rate.

[-] 2 points by factsrfun (8300) from Phoenix, AZ 9 years ago

He sounds like somebody talking about a new car they just bought.

[-] 2 points by GirlFriday (17435) 9 years ago

Didn't they?

[-] 2 points by factsrfun (8300) from Phoenix, AZ 9 years ago

True enough, but I heard there was a recall on that model :).

[-] -1 points by SameOldSong (-5) 9 years ago

No, the union says it's theirs and it isn't for sale. LOL.

Who cares abotu holding the ones you VOTE for accountable. Just keep attacking the ones you didnt.

That makes a lot of fuckin sense.

Like yelling at someone else's kids while your own rob the neighbors.

if this is true, what's wrong with a private citizen spending money to support a democratically elected governor? Liberals and left wing fund politicians why aren't you going after them? Soros, Tides Foundation, ACLU, CAIR....

[-] 2 points by shoozTroll (17632) 9 years ago

We aren't affiliated with FLAKESnews.

I thought you knew that?

You probably don't know FLAKESnews lies either, or that Murdock likely is a criminal.

[-] -1 points by tomahawk99 (-26) 9 years ago

if you can't debate, then save your typing strokes for someone else.

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 9 years ago

Wait......What???

You call what you do debate???

You must be a (R)epelican't. It's the only explanation that fits.

[-] -2 points by KochRocks (-70) 9 years ago

We know that you libtards are only affiliated with media (sucks) matters

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 9 years ago

Why do you keep bring up mediamatters?

The few times I've been there, I could find no lies.

FLAKESnews does nothing but lie and misdirect.

You're perfect example.

[-] 2 points by GirlFriday (17435) 9 years ago

Just so we are clear, you have no problem with them literally purchasing the state of Wisconsin. Further, you have no problem with ALEC.

[Removed]

[-] -2 points by tomahawk99 (-26) 9 years ago

i support the right for ALEC to exist just like the Media Matters, SIEU, ACLU, moveon have a right to exist. the governor of Wisconsin was elected fairly. The unions are trying to recall him, as they have the right to do or try to do. I don't see you complaining about the big Union money in Wisconsin or Indiana, Ohio to support what they want.

[-] 2 points by GirlFriday (17435) 9 years ago

I just want to make sure that I heard you. You support corporations writing legislation.

[-] 2 points by shoozTroll (17632) 9 years ago

You have to support ALEC, because (R)epelican'ts are too stupid to write their own legislation.

That's why the corporations created it.

It's really rather sad.

[-] 2 points by GirlFriday (17435) 9 years ago

Yep.

[-] -1 points by tomahawk99 (-26) 9 years ago

just want to make sure that i heard you, you support Unions writing legislation?

[-] 1 points by GirlFriday (17435) 9 years ago

That is what I thought. You sure do. Thanks, tomahawk. Good to know what you are about.

[-] -1 points by tomahawk99 (-26) 9 years ago

don't be so closed minded. i support some of occupy's ideas, but come on, do you blindly support what Unions do politically with their money?

[-] 2 points by GirlFriday (17435) 9 years ago

No, you don't. You don't support OWS and it is very clear. You have no problem with ALEC and the Koch heads.

[+] -4 points by KochRocks (-70) 9 years ago

Who in their right mind would support OWS???? it is about ready to be taken off life support

[-] 1 points by GirlFriday (17435) 9 years ago

Keep dreaming.

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 9 years ago

That's the point, silly.

People of "right" mind don't support anything that's the correct thing to do.

In fact, it's the "right" that needs all the life support it can get.

That's why their PACs are taking in so much money, and knew they needed Citizens United to have any hope of survival.

[-] -2 points by KochRocks (-70) 9 years ago

Ok so you are saying that (raping, murder, social unrest, filth, destruction of property), that goes on in OWS, is the right thing to do??? No thank you

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 9 years ago

No silly, that's what the (R)epelican'ts and their cohorts do.

You should lay off the crack pipe and shut off FLAKESnews.

It makes you flakey.

Is it fun to be that confused?

[+] -5 points by KochRocks (-70) 9 years ago

Poor pathetic OWS goons have really taken a beating from the conservatives on here

[+] -5 points by KochRocks (-70) 9 years ago

Gov Walker for Pres

[+] -5 points by KochRocks (-70) 9 years ago

OWS is dead. Tea Party rocks!!!!!!!!!!!!!

[-] 4 points by GirlFriday (17435) 9 years ago

That's even funnier.

Yeah...........and I'm not laughing with you. :D

[+] -5 points by KochRocks (-70) 9 years ago

Go Gov Walker and the Koch brothers!!!!! You rock!!!

[-] 4 points by GirlFriday (17435) 9 years ago

Boy, do you look silly.

[-] -3 points by KochRocks (-70) 9 years ago
