  •  They are using the same techniques the White House (4+ / 0-)

    is accused of using with its  “stray voltage” strategy, as devised by David Plouffe.

    This CBS News article explains it.

    Basically, the Kochs hope to keep this "Obamacare is bad" meme alive by keeping it in the forefront, whether it is true or not.

    I am no big fan of ACA, and I have been vocal in that regard.  And I still think the worst parts of ACA are yet to come.

    But some of these ads are so blatantly false, it can only mean the Koch's really don't care about being accurate.  They simply want to keep hammering home the same message to keep it alive until November.

    •  Maintaining the echo chamber (6+ / 0-)

      is priority number one for all conservative operatives, and not just the Koches.

      The "big lies" repeated endlessly in an echo chamber is  the only way they can keep their voters scared and misinformed enough to keep voting for them.

      "There was no such thing as a "wealthy" hunter-gatherer. It is the creation of human society that has allowed the wealthy to become wealthy. As such, they have an obligation to pay a bit more to sustain that society than the not-so-wealthy." - Me
