An announcement on the group’s website says that the vote next week for the Sandy aid package will be a “key vote”—meaning senators who support sending money for reconstruction could face an avalanche of attack ads in their next election. Already, opposition to the bill is growing, although it passed one procedural hurdle last night.


Koch’s top deputy in New Jersey, a surly gentleman named Steve Lonegan, who heads the local AFP state chapter, called the aid package a “disgrace.” “This is not a federal government responsibility,” Lonegan told reporters. “We need to suck it up and be responsible for taking care of ourselves.”

Really thought the GOP had learned something from the last several national elections but it is clear they intend to double down.

i didn't read the article, but regardless if this is sensationalized or there's some explanation; the Kochs are legitimately terrible human beings.

Sooooo many people think AFP is some real fiscal conservative group.

Reality is they are suppressora of free thinking and the middle and lower classes.

not hate. just interested in these groups that somehow promote fiscally conservative policy while lifting up the lower and middle class, as these two things are mutually exclusive

Couldn't remember who he was, so I looked him up.

Since 2000, David H. Koch Charitable Foundation have pledged or contributed more than $750 million to further cancer research, enhance medical centers, support educational institutions, sustain arts and cultural institutions, and conduct public policy studies. Since 2006, the Chronicle of Philanthropy has listed Koch as one of the world's top 50 philanthropists



Some may not like his politics (generally speaking, I don't like his politics), but its ludicrous to call him a terrible human being. The truth is that we need more people like him in the world.

Wonder if the Koch brothers had the same ideas after 9/11.....

...oh, that's right, they did. The Republican blockade against the first responders medical treatment package in 2010. That is until the Senate stepped in and forced a test vote and the Republicans then gave in to compromise.
