The billionaire Koch brothers, Charles and David, richest men on earth #7 and 8 (but together with more wealth than #1) have been in the headlines all summer thanks to their pouring funds into SuperPACS designed to unseat President Obama and the Democrats

Noted & Twittered. Things sure haven't changed since the commencement of the 20th century have they. The robber barons are going full tilt reaping massive short term profit at the expense of the planet and everything in it, on it and over it.

I always said the Koch Brothers were a double hernia and with all the money they pour into SuperPACS to further their conservative elitist agendas, I'm right. Thanks Carrie.

Interesting how they don't support the President's efforts to help poor, unemployed citizens.

INTERESTING......

must be tough to have to share your money to be #1.....think of all the good they could do if they were willing to create jobs for US citizens....how many $100K jobs could they support and still have plenty left over for a good quality life.......these guys sicken me....

Anyone who worships money can't truly be happy.

Oh Jean, of course they can be happy - as long as they get what they want - regardless of others.

The Romney puppeteers...I sincerely hope that money can't really buy an American Election. I gotta believe that every day smart Americans will prevail. The entire world is watching to see if we will let the crazies in!

I, actually, attended a benefit spaghetti dinner last evening, and believe it or not, one of the gentlemen there, asked, 'Who are the Koch Brothers'.
My mouth dropped open and I walked away, fearing my response would not endear me to him. May I add, this guy is an Obama supporter. Words elude me further, on ths subject.

I'm dumb-founded as to why any rational person would be in favor of ANYTHING, in which these two, narcissistic brothers are in favor. They look 'down' with extreme disrespect, on the average JOE.
Don't the lower and middle, and.......upper middle classes comprehend, they will never accept anyone, who doesn't share their considerable wealth? The 98% are pawns, in their exploitation of power.

The Kochs aren't the only wealthy people who got wealthier while the rest of the working poor became poorer.
