    The lefts problem with the Koch brothers has everything to do with the fact that they oppose communism. The Kochs do not live lavishly, they work hard to promote a safe efficient industry that makes a product that the Leftist elites cherish more than anything; jet fuel for their executive jets.

    That the Koch bothers without fanfare devote prodigious sums to charity cant buy them salvation; letting communism run the oil patch the same way Venezuela does is what the left wants: rust, decay, and poverty - the hallmarks of socialism

    Oligarchs like the Kochs are ruining American politics. This is exactly what happened in Russia and the ex-Soviet Republics. 25 years after independence, oligarchs still own governments.
    Don't blame Russia. The US has always been an oligarchy, actually a kleptocracy, that steals trillions from the poor of the world.

    And yet 80% of Americans will see a reduction in the taxes.

    That must the moronic 80% of the population.

    A tax cut of what? 5000 bucks.

    That is chicken feed.

    I can not tell you how low you Democrats are for this man. Your party would do much better if you would refuse his money.

    But of course that will not happen.
    I'm trying to visualize a group of politicians as they consider the idea of refusing bribes.

    Oh, wait... I found one showing our politicians considering a proposal to stop accepting bribes.

    If these folks are so poor, where did they get the Trillions that are allegedly being stolen?

    You'd almost think that if a person has a trillion dollars, he'd be considered to be rich.

    If I got $5000, that would be about 75% of my Federal tax liability.

    What percent of your tax bill amounts to something you'd like to have not taken by the Feds?

    Houses in San Jose California are currently priced at $900,000.

    Rental for some places is 3,420$ a month.

    My tuition fee for this upcoming college semester is approximately 4,000 dollars

    Again, 5,000 dollars in tax cuts is small potatoes.

    Now if the tax bill reduces my family’s taxes by 50,000 dollars, then I might see some actual merit in tax cuts.
