Koch VA Privatization Group Spends Big For Their Pennsylvania Puppet

September 28, 2016

The Koch brothers just launched a six-figure digital ad buy in part on behalf of their favorite Pennsylvania puppet, Senator Pat Toomey. An overwhelming majority of veterans are opposed to having their healthcare system privatized but that hasn’t stopped the Koch brothers and their sham front group Concerned Veterans for America (CVA) from trying to cut and privatize the VA.

Toomey is getting Koch money because the brothers know that he’ll champion their anti-seniors and working families, pro-Big Oil agenda in the Senate.

Two weeks ago, the Kochs announced that Concerned Veterans for America, Generation Opportunity, and LIBRE Initiative, will each be consolidated under the Kochs’ flagship Americans for Prosperity group. That tells you all you need to know about the Kochs’ latest CVA intervention for Toomey.

American Bridge Vice President Eddie Vale issued the following statement on the Kochs’ latest intervention for their favorite Pennsylvanian puppet:

“This isn’t about veterans issues; the Kochs are nervous that they stand to lose a loyal ‘yes, of course, Mr. Koch’ man who’ll promote not just VA privatization but also the rest of their self-serving, anti-working families agenda.

“That’s why the billionaires have been spending money in Pennsylvania: they know Senator Pat Toomey won’t hesitate to put their interests over what’s best for Pennsylvanians.

“Pennsylvania’s working families deserve better than a boilerplate Koch puppet who doesn’t care about them.”
