With very deep pockets, the Koch Brothers have been one of the most powerful forces behind the resurgence of the war on workers by the GOP.
And with important elections only a year away, the Koch Brothers are looking to exert as much influence as possible to get Republicans to go their way on the issues.
“Charles and David Koch’s wealthy network of donors will spend approximately $400 million to push it conservative agenda forward in the upcoming 2018 midterm elections, the group told Fox News on Saturday.
‘Three-hundred million to $400 million for this cycle for politics and policy – we believe we’re headed to the high end of that range,’ said Tim Phillips, who oversees Americans for Prosperity, a group funded by the conservative billionaire brothers.
‘What we’re urging Republicans in the House and the Senate to do is to be bold, to go big,’ Phillips said, stressing healthcare and tax reform.
‘It gives them the opportunity to point to real accomplishments when they get to 2018,’ he said.”
