David Koch Gets His Way With John Boehner
John Boehner - Koch Sniffer
The story in part from Think Progress here:
But, then conservative powerhouses Heritage Foundation and Koch Industries made room for a new plan when they both urged Republicans to approve a debt ceiling increase with no strings attached.
Now, in a striking change in tone, House GOP leadership have presented a clean six-week debt ceiling extension that does not include a plan to fund the government. At a press conference Thursday, House GOP leadership announced the precise new strategy, and a mere one day after Heritage Action CEO Michael Needham admitted the group will “give the speaker some flex on a short-term debt limit increase,” in order to extend the shutdown over Obama-care.
So, who do the GOPers work for - what does the people's house, now firmly under GOP majority rule, stand for? Certainly not the country nor the people they profess to serve.
So, Mr. Koch: what's next on your GOP shopping list? Shame on the GOP for caving to this billionaire's every whim.
