The Koch Brothers are reportedly “exploring” funding Democrats in 2020 at the Congressional level.
A Koch wing of the Democratic party would be a disaster for progress.
The Koch Brothers haven’t changed their tune―they’re still science-denying plutocrats who are fundamentally hostile to democracy. The Koch Brothers are just seeing diminishing returns on investing in Republicans, so they may as well take over the other political party too.
The Koch Brothers have no interest in helping advance President Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, or even Joe Biden’s agendas. They’re seeking the 2021 equivalents of Joe Lieberman, Ben Nelson, and Blanche Lincoln, who waylaid President Obama’s agenda when he had a 60-vote.
The Koch Brothers know that a progressive wind is blowing. And this is how they’re going to fight back.
SIGN IF YOU AGREE: No Democrat should take money from the Koch Brothers.
