They TOOK the money regardless.
And it wasn't just pre-2014, now was it?
Four Dems Bad for Environment, Good for Kochs
The four Democratic Koch candidates are: Collin Peterson (MN, $13,000), Henry Cuellar (TX, $2,500), Jim Costa (CA, $1,000), and Kurt Schrader (OR, $2,500). Each received Koch cash in 2016 as well.
The KochPAC support for these Democrats comes despite their opposition to the Kochs’ favorite legislation last year, the Jobs and Tax Act of 2017. The Kochs stand to gain as much as $1.4 billion from the tax cut, so why do they fund a handful of Democrats in the U.S. House who opposed the bill, when they also fund 170 GOP members who all voted for the tax cut?
These are special Democrats for the Kochs.
Collin Peterson is one of the better-known climate deniers outside oil and gas producing states, unique among Democrats. In blocking climate legislation in his committee, he said, “They’re saying to us [that climate change is] going to be a big problem because it’s going to be warmer than it usually is; my farmers are going to say that’s a good thing since they’ll be able to grow more corn.”
Peterson’s unusual position may have something to do with the fact that his state, Minnesota, is home to one of Koch’s largest refineries and a crude oil pipeline network.
Jim Costa, while not an outright denialist like Peterson, nevertheless voted against allowing the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to regulate greenhouse gases under the Clean Air Act.
Laugh, laugh, laugh!!!
Those are DINOs. Collin Peterson is pro-life and voted NO on Obamacare in 2010 too, she's a Dem in name only so taking 13k from the Kochs doesn't surprise me.
But by the same token, those DINOs in heavily pro-Trump districts aren't going to be pledging amnesty for illegals. Like I said, can't see any Dem making that pledge. They'd risk losing the next election from the Koch association or from the amnesty pledge, so my point stands.
I hold the titles to more than 3 homes. It's called wealth building and the American dream. You should try it. You'd need to get a job first though.
Denigrate them as a distraction and deflection as you must.
My point however is sustained.
