A recent video reported in The Boston Globe shows Scott Brown thanking billionaire right-wing radical David Koch for critical 2010 campaign donations and asking for more support in 2012.
David Koch and his brother Charles are infamous for their extreme positions and ruthless lobbying on behalf of their oil and paper empire, which feeds their $35 billion fortune. The Koch’s have contributed tens of millions of secret dollars to:
Undercut democracy in the Supreme Court,
Back the Tea Party’s far-right congressional agenda,
Fight against environmental protections that
safeguard the health of our people and planet,
Eliminate collective bargaining in Wisconsin.
Scott Brown’s support for doling out expensive corporate tax breaks, leaving millions of Americans without health insurance, and trying to gut the EPA are straight out of the Koch play book. In this jobs crisis, Massachusetts deserves a senator who will be focused on ordinary peoples’ concerns and not take cues from out-of-touch big wigs.
“Massachusetts can’t afford a senator who keeps company with the Koch brothers,” said Bob Massie, “We need a senator who doesn’t go to the Koch Brothers with his hand out, but a leader who fights against their misguided values and principles.”
