It’s really not that complicated
The KOCH Bothers Stole Christmas
It happened on the shortest day of the year. The Koch Brothers and their front organizations; Americans for Property and the Tea Party took over congress. This isn’t a narrow liberal opinion of lefty bloggers or recall activists. The quote and title of this post was spoken on the floor of the House of Representatives just days ago – Dec. 20. The words were spoken by Rep. Hank Johnson after a long day of “debate” on the tax holiday extension. He came forward and spoke for a full hour before the final gavel of that days business.
Like many of the actions of the Koch Brothers, a historic session was closed without exciting headlines or a “breaking news” reaction from the media or the notice of most voters. The move to buy power and control of the Supreme Court, 26 State Houses, and the United States Congress has been insidious and slow and covert. Dec. 20 was a historic victory for the Koch Brothers power grab; they got the United States Congress for Christmas.
Another Institution on the Koch Control List
The fringe right faction of the Republican Party acted for the Koch Brothers to usurp the power of the House, the Senate, and the President of the United States.
On Dec. 20, 2011 the Congress of the United States was delivered to the Koch Brothers in a box – just in time for Christmas.
