Reid: “Republicans Might As Well Wear Koch Insignias” Like NASCAR Drivers (VIDEO)
On Monday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), continued to press the attack against exposing the dark Koch brothers money that supports the neo-conservative Tea Party and Republican agenda.
On the floor of the Senate, Reid didn’t pull any punches;
“NASCAR fans can easily find their favorite drivers by simply looking at the cars as they fly by, because there are corporate emblems on the hood of the car. for our clothing here in the Senate, we don’t bear commercials logos. Many Republicans might as well wear Koch insignias. But as members of the U.S. Senate there should never be any doubt as to our sponsor – the American people… While they don’t wear Koch Industries’ ties and jackets, they display their sponsors proudly through their actions here in the United States Senate.”
He then followed up his statement by tweeting the following:
As we have posted in the past, Charles and David Koch are the driving force behind the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), and Americans For Prosperity. Together with the slew of puppet politicians that do their bidding, the Koch’s secretive dark-money machine is funding the climate change denial movement, the assault on women’s rights and LBGT rights, “right-to-work” legislation, “stand your ground” laws, voter ID laws that disenfranchise female and minority voters, de-funding public education, privatizing prisons, and a host of other issues that threaten the American Dream.
This is not the first time that Reid has taken on the Koch machine from the floor; in March he slammed them, saying;
“None of us should be afraid of the Koch brothers. These two multi-billionaires can spend millions of dollars of their own money rigging the political process for their own benefit. But that doesn’t mean we have to lay down and take it because we’re not going to.”
Clearly, this full-frontal assault on the politicians that clamor for the Koch’s support is a part of a larger strategy that the Dems are going to carry at least through the 2014 mid-terms, if not beyond.
As we have told you before, the 2012 elections were the most expensive in the nation’s history – approximately 600 billion dollars was spent. That is a staggering $700 million more than was spent in the second-most expensive election this country had ever seen, the lion’s share spent on often misleading or out-right false political advertisements and television commercials. And with the recent Supreme Court McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission ruling that allows for unlimited campaign contributions, WE AIN’T SEEN NOTHIN’ YET.
