Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has been hitting the Koch brothers hard over their continued deceptive ads about Obamacare and their efforts to buy themselves a Senate. He took to the floor Tuesday to renew his attack.
“Senate Republicans, madam president, are addicted to Koch,” Reid said today on the Senate floor.Thanks, Harry.
Reid’s vocal opposition to the wealthy conservative moneymen kicked off last week, when he took to the Senate floor and accused the Koch brothers of “trying to buy America” and supporting a group running ads that he said are “absolutely false.” The Nevada senator continued his string of attacks today.
“What is un-American is when shadow billionaires pour unlimited money into our democracy to rig the system and benefit themselves and the wealthiest 1 percent,” Reid said.
“I’ll continue to shine a light on this subversion of democracy,” Reid said. “As long as the Koch brothers continue to spend tens of millions of dollars to buy elections, I’m going to do all I can to expose their intentions.”
