The Koch Brothers: Two Mentally Ill Guys With a Lot of Money
Koch Brothers Net Worth Tops $100 Billion as TV Warfare Escalates
Charles and David Koch, the billionaire brothers who run Wichita, Kansas-based Koch Industries Inc., added $1.3 billion to their collective fortune yesterday on reports that U.S. industrial production gained more than forecast. The surge elevated their net worth to more than $100 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.
The Koch’s ascent comes as Freedom Partners, one of their fundraising networks, last week aired its first batch of television ads targeted at this year’s U.S. Senate races, including commercials knocking Democratic Senator Mark Udall of Colorado and Representative Bruce Braley of Iowa for supporting President Barack Obama’s health-care law.
The Koch brothers can afford any medical procedure available to human kind but they’re fighting the ACA because, ah, because why, I have no idea. Apparently they don’t want you and I to have even rudimentary health insurance. I mean, even with the ACA, any one of us could be wiped out by the expense of catastrophic illness. But no! The sociopathic Kochs, who make billions in a day or two, don’t want us to have that. Why in the world do they spending their time trying to quash that for millions of people?
They’re two sick, sick dudes.
