The Kochs' brothers story is not one 'from rags to riches' but one of being born into a family of very rich industrialists and businessmen.Their private net worth is $36 billion apiece and their mantra is that SOCIALISM is the king of all evils. Then,.....they take $88 Million in Corporate Welfare. Eh,... that is taxpayer's money.

Courtesy of Citizens United they can now pay for the 'best corporate president' money can buy.
Tax deductable probably.

Don't be surprised, corporate welfare is a long standing part of the capitaist system in the U.S....something that needs to be removed from said system, but if you try to do so, you will get called a Socialist
It is the same as the lie that raising the minimum wage leads to losses in jobs; both are bullshit!
