The Koch Brothers are so evil they recently donated $100 million to a (gasp!) NYC hospital.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid renewed his crusade against the Koch brothers Thursday, and demanded that Republicans disavow the two men who have spent tens of millions of dollars to back conservative causes.
“Is even one of you — is even one of you — willing to stand up and disavow the Koch brothers’ agenda?” Mr. Reid demanded on the Senate floor as he opened Thursday’s session.
It’s the latest installment in what’s becoming a frequent attack by Mr. Reid on David and Charles Koch, two of the wealthiest men in America. Mr. Reid led off his weekly press availability Tuesday with an attack on the two brothers, and then followed with the latest barrage of criticism.
“I’m not afraid of the Koch brothers. None of us should be afraid of the Koch brothers,” he said.
Mr. Reid objects to anti-Obamacare ads being run by groups in the Koch organization, which Mr. Reid says are untrue.
Update: Just a tad overboard.
Harry Reid described the billionaire Koch brothers’ philosophies as “radical” more than a dozen times on Thursday morning, making good on his vow to continue hammering them directly from the Senate floor. […]
“When Republican senators rush to defend the Koch brothers, they are also defending the Koch brothers’ radical philosophy. And it’s radical. How do we know it’s radical? They said so. I’m not making those words up,” Reid said. “Is even one of you [Republicans] willing to stand up and disavow the Koch brothers’ radical agenda? It’s radical. It’s radical because they say it’s radical. And it is radical.”
“Obviously, they must agree with the Koch brothers’ radical philosophy. Republicans are willing to defend the Koch brothers on the floor of this Senate, but are they willing to defend the Koch brothers’ radical agenda as well?” added the Nevada Democrat.
