    Kochs Plan to Spend $900 Million on 2016 Campaign

    http://www.nytimes.com/2015/01/27/us...=top-news&_r=0

    The political network overseen by the conservative billionaires Charles G. and David H. Koch plans to spend close to $900 million on the 2016 campaign, an unparalelled effort by outside groups to shape a presidential election that is already on track to be the most expensive in history.

    The goal, revealed Monday at the Kochs’ annual winter donor retreat near Palm Springs, Calif., would effectively allow their political organization to operate at the same financial scale as the Democratic and Republican parties. In the last presidential election, the Republican National Committee and the party’s two congressional campaign committees spent a total of $657 million.


    What did the Democrats spend?

Another thing I learned was that most of them were not written during the Bush Administration either.

    So which one of those stories during the Bush years said Soros was dumping millions to help "coordinated outside groups to shape a presidential election", which is what he was doing?

    Which article during that time said that Soros was trying to "influence legislation and campaigns across the country", which is also what he was doing?

    I also can't find any that reveal Soros was dumping his millions into "nonprofit groups that are not required to reveal donors", which of course makes it "almost impossible to tell how much of the money is provided by" Mr. Soros?


    If you still need me to spell it out for you, I will... What I'm asking is "Where are the Soros hit pieces written by the NY Times during his hay-day as king of the political sugar daddies while Bush was in office?"
    One reason for many of those things is that most of that was illegal during the Bush years.

    Thanks SCOTUS.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Same with Presidential elections- big donors have access.
    What about the underlined part are you missing.

    These donors represent the largest concentration of political money outside the party establishment, one that has achieved enormous power in Republican circles in recent years.
    What part of "who is the party establishment" don't you understand?

    So, thanks for admitting he was breaking the law in doing such....Nothing the Koch's are doing is illegal....So, if anything Soros should be prosecuted right?

    I can understand how that would be a problem for you.

    BTW, have you ever looked at how much $ Barrack Obama has raised on the same Wall Street he bailed out?

    I do believe it is legal to support a candidate of one's choice, all the Kochs mean to you is that Hillary will have to promise more to her money people....
    I look at it all. Not just one party.

    It doesn't matter to anyone but Soros. Done is done, and it's history now.

    Well, thats one way to read the post. Not sure how you did that, but it's a way.

    I suppose I could clarify it, but I think we both know that it would be futile because you'll choose your own reality no matter what.
