    But I think the buck stops at the Koch Brothers and maybe one other guy, at the outset. I also think they're personal beliefs trump their financial causes.

    Of course, they think people on welfare on takers (while they themselves benefit from specific government subsidies). They think you and I are takers. They think the guy who owns 3 FedEx shops and 4 TGIFs is a taker, too, and that his investing partner are also dregs on society who don't have what it takes to "make it."

    They're not interested in lowering taxes because they want to make more money, for example, but because they think that people are chattel and deserve to be treated as such. And a few other billionaires and hedge fund managers jump on board because of the tax policy initiatives.

    I'm living in America, and in America you're on your own. America's not a country. It's just a business.
