Who are the Koch brothers, and why are they supporting Cain?Submitted by Jefferson2 on Fri, 11/04/2011 - 15:35
I just saw HC on TV bragging about his "brother from a different mother" relationship with the Koch brothers.
What is the story on these guys?
When I did a brief Google search, I found this Bloomberg article about them.
Here is an excerpt:
"Charles and David have supported the Tea Party, a loosely organized group that aims to shrink the size of government and cut federal spending.
These are long-standing tenets for the Kochs. In 1980, David Koch ran for vice president on the Libertarian ticket, pledging to abolish Social Security, the Federal Reserve System , , welfare, minimum wage laws and federal agencies -- including the Department of Energy, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Central Intelligence Agency."
Seems like they would be more in RP's camp, rather than Hc's.
