The Koch Brothers: They’re EEEeeeeevil

Just got this fundraising e-mail from the DSCC. Remember when Barack Obama said his biggest opponent was cynicism?

Subject: Puppet Masters

Breaking: Senate Republicans just blocked President Obama’s “Buffett Rule”, which would have closed the loopholes that allow corporate CEOs to pay a lower tax rate than the rest of us.  

This is the culmination of everything the Koch Brothers have worked for, politically. They’ll destroy anything that resembles a fairer system. And they are the behind-the-scenes puppet masters orchestrating the GOP attempt to take back the White House and the Senate.

Already, they’ve been on the air with swift boat-style SuperPAC ads attacking President Obama and Senate Democrats. The only way for us to fight back is to neutralize their money with grassroots contributions.

We need your help to defeat Republicans and re-elect President Obama. Click here to give $5 or more so we can make Republicans pay for protecting millionaires, billionaires and Big Oil. The onslaught is here.

We need to raise $850,000 this month to counter it — and strike back. Click here to give $5 or more right now. Thank you, Guy Cecil DSCC Executive Director
