Congress stonewalled on Environmental Protection Agency legislation, most likely because the corporations and their megabucks have succeeded in pretty much buying the vote, not to mention the media.
Are we headed for an Orwellian world?
The Koch brothers, worth $35 billion, have donated millions to the Republican Party to ensure that their agenda will be carried out. They have repeatedly funded stealth attacks on the Obama administration, much like the Swift Boaters. They operate oil refineries in Alaska, Texas, and Minnesota. They also own Dixie cups, Georgia Pacific lumber, Lycra, and many more companies.
They want a tax-free government. Like many rich people, they want to have their cake and eat it, too. Where does that leave the little man? Powerless.
