Meet the Billionaire Brothers Funding the Right-Wing War on Obama, Think Progress. by Faiz Shakir, et al.
They’re the 9th richest people in America and they’re pushing hard to upend President Obama’s progressive agenda.
Billionaire brothers David and Charles Koch are the wealthiest, and perhaps most effective, opponents of President Obama’s progressive agenda. They loom in the background of every major domestic policy dispute this year. Ranked as the 4th richest men in America, each with $41 billion by last who’s-got-the-biggest-pile report, the Koch brothers sit at the helm of Koch Industries, a massive privately owned conglomerate of manufacturing, oil, gas, and timber interests. David and Charles are also responsible for a vicious attack campaign aimed directly at obstructing and killing any and all progressive reform. They wish to be the corporate masters of America. How does that feel to you, fellow peasants?
