Koch: Even More Powerful and Well-Connected Than You Thought

Abby Zimet


Right-wing brothers Charles and David Koch, each worth over

they also strengthen a "culture of prosperity" through meetings with
like-minded corporate "investors" who oppose health, energy, financial and other
reforms. Details on their symbiotic relationship with big moneyed interests from
Glenn Beck and the Chamber of Commerce to oil, health insurance, Wall
Street and real estate companies here; more on those connections from CounterPunch here.
