A rich man, a middle class man and a poor man walk into a bar. They sit at a table with 12 cookies. The rich man takes 11 cookies and then tells the middle class man that the poor man is trying to steal the last cookie. Such is the state of American political landscape at the beginning of the 21st century.
The Koch brothers are the rich man. They are going to raise and spend almost $1 billion on the next presidential campaign. They are going to tell the hard working middle class that the money given to the less fortunate in our society is being taken away from them.
They are going to spend more money in this election cycle than the whole of the Republican Party, or for that matter, the Democratic Party spent in 2012. And that was the most expensive campaign in history.
