ANOTHER Koch bros. backed survey says what?

And here we go again!

The self ownage is real folks!

Another Backfire for Koch Brothers as Survey Shows Americans Actually Want Free College, $15 Minimum Wage, and Medicare for All
The results dealt an embarrassing blow to the right-wing agenda pushed by the billionaires' army of dark money groups

Delivering yet another blow to the billionaire Koch Brothers' right-wing agenda, a survey conducted by In Pursuit Of, the pair's public relations firm, found that the majority of Americans support policies such as free public college, a $15 hourly minimum wage, and government-run healthcare—policies which the brothers often fight against using their army of dark money groups.

Slamming a RealClearPolitics summary published late last month—"which spun the results as favorable to the Koch network"—The Intercept on Thursday noted how the survey (pdf) actually revealed that "where the Koch brothers see government tyranny, most Americans see common-sense solutions to basic problems."

As the following graph outlines, the majority of people surveyed said they believe "healthcare reform that puts doctors and patients in charge," ending harsh sentences for nonviolent crimes, "government-paid college tuition," a $15 an hour minimum wage, stricter rules for Wall Street, and "increasing government assistance for childcare" are "very effective" or "somewhat effective" solutions to basic problems faced by millions of Americans.

1. It's easy to spout "government tyranny" when it comes to basic financial problems faced by...

...most Americans when you're worth billions.

Just fucking die, already.

2. I vote the Kochs pay for it.

Since they have more money than half the country combined and they've been starving the system for so long. Who is with me?
