Charles Koch Spends MILLIONS To Punish Poor People

Republican billionaires have always just kind
of had this hatred of poor people and it’s never really been explained, right? I mean, these billionaires like Charles Koch,
the surviving half of the Koch brothers, they typically don’t have to deal with poor people
on a daily basis. I am willing to bet the Charles Koch has not
had to walk past a homeless person on the street for decades. Oh, they might see ’em on the news. They might see them from the window of their,
you know, expensive cars, but they don’t actually have to interact with them. So why, why are these billionaires launching
this massive war on the poor? Well, there is a reason for it, but before
we get into the reason we’ve got to talk about their latest escapades, and this is according
to a phenomenal new report in sludge from Alex Kotch that explains that Charles Koch,
again, the last remaining a horrible Koch brother along with the Bradley family, have
been funneling millions of dollars into this group called the foundation for government
accountability and what the foundation for government accountability does in addition
to wining and dining a republican politicians. And GOP leaders is, they go out there and
they spread propaganda about people using snap benefits, food stamps and Medicaid. They don’t like people getting these government
benefits and they have been working with Republicans spending again, millions of dollars to try
to get them to scale back those benefits and kick people off of them. In short, these billionaires are spending
millions to punish people who barely make thousands. That’s what’s happening in the United States
and it’s really ramped up within the past 12 months according to this report. Now as Kotch reports, Koch isn’t necessarily
giving a ton of money himself to this organization. Instead Koch’s other groups, donors, trusts
and donors, a action fund, I believe it is, or donors trust action. They are giving millions to the group. Those are the dark money groups that the Kochs
are associated with and funding, so he’s giving money just not in his own name. He wants it coming to his other ah from his
other groups here. But again, the whole reason is to kick poor
people off of government benefits and now for the reason, you know, like I said, they
don’t have interactions every day with with poor people. You know, probably don’t even stop to think
about them other than how they can cruelly hurt them. But the reason they’re launching these attacks
is because they believe it helps to shore up the Republican base. Poor people in the United States have been
escape goat for the Republican Party since at least the last 40 years. Ronald Reagan came along with his welfare
queen claims and what did he do? He people that these mooches essentially living
off the government’s teat, getting these checks every month and they’re living the high life
while you, you average American workers, you’re going into the factory everyday, you’re going
into the fields every day. You’re going in, you’re sitting in that cubicle
every day, barely making enough money to survive. And it’s because of those lazy welfare queens
out there. we’ve got a punish them so that you can do
better. Now, that was the extent of the connection
that Republicans have really ever been able to establish. Your life sucks because a poor person is getting
food stamps. They never explained how exactly that works,
like why your suffering because somebody else is on food stamps because there is no connection. There is no correlation. Somebody getting food stamps down the street
from you does not affect how much money your employer chooses to not pay you. Somebody getting food stamps on the other
street doesn’t affect your rising healthcare costs. It doesn’t affect how much you pay to walk
in and fill a prescription at CVS, but Republicans somehow managed to convince enough people
that the poor people were the region. Their life sucks. And the Koch brother, along with the Bradley
family and the Bradley Foundation are still at it today. It is an inhuman, cruel attack on poor people
for no other reason than to convince slightly less poor people that they need to vote Republicans
so that the very poor people no longer siphon whatever government benefits away from the
people who wouldn’t qualify for them in the first place. If it all sounds kind of confusing, that’s
because it is because that’s how Republican talking points work. There is no thread. There are no facts. There are no statistics to back them up. It’s just a random assortment of statements
that for some reason has actually worked pretty well to help brainwash too many people in
this country.
