Reid, speaking on the floor of the Senate, attacked the billionaire brothers as using their fortune for political purposes to “rig the system,” in favor of the 1 percent, and hit Senate Republicans for being "addicted to Koch."
“We may never know how much money the Koch brothers are spending to rig the system,” Reid said. “Republican senators have come to the floor to defend the Koch brothers’ attempt to buy our democracy."
Darn those billionaires and their attempts to promote free-market policies and politicians!
“Senate Republicans say whoever has the most money gets the free speech,” Reid continued.
Wait, Democrats don't think this way? It's not like they ever take money from billionaire influencers, oh wait …
“This is about two very wealthy individuals who intend to buy their own Congress,” Reid said.
He could say the very same thing about Tom and Jim Steyer, but he won’t.
After Reid spoke, Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., defended Tom Steyer, saying his push is only trying to repair the damage done by the Koch brothers' spending.
Their money, good. Yours, bad. Got it?
And while we're on that subject, the "evil" Koch brothers are only the 59th biggest donors in U.S. politics. Six of the top 10 are unions. Guess which party they donate to?
