Koch brothers own the Tea Party and Tea Party Owns Republican Party?

Who Owns the TEA Party?

By James Turnage:

Listening to John Boehner, we all know who owns the Republican Party, the TEA Party. Their members claim to be a grass roots organization who want to change the “status quo” of Washington. But who owns them?

On August 30, 2012, a New Yorker magazine article written by Jane Mayer reported the the Koch brothers through Koch Industries were providing financial and organizational support for the TEA Party through “Americans for Prosperity”, an organization founded by David Koch.

In 1984 David Koch founded “Citizens for a Sound Economy”. Part of this agency split in 2004 to become “Freedom Works”, a controversial organization involved in securing elected officials who support big business.

Former ambassador Christopher Meyer wrote in the “Daily Mail” that the TEA Party is a mix of “grassroots populism, professional conservative politics, and big money”, the last supplied by the Koch brothers.

Jane Mayer says the Koch brothers involvement with the TEA Party is so secretive, she labels it ‘covert’.

So, if the TEA Party is owned by big business, and the TEA Party owns the Republican Party, what does it all mean? I think the answer is in the recent election. Romney equals big money, equals loser. TEA Party candidates supported by big money, equals many losers.

The American people deserve a government that works, and works for everyone. I want to return to being an independent. I want real Republicans, the G.O.P. of the past that worked hard to make our country and its people prosper. I don’t want big business running the country, concerned only with increasing their wealth.

    The Tea Party faction is addicted to the power it wields, but the thing about the movement is they lie to the Americans people. Through slick advertisment campaigns that tell only the worst part of a spin they suck in the less-educated, who take them as truth. With the Tea Party, nothing is ever as it seems. They actually formed by a common hate for America’s first black President, Barack Obama. Its sole aim is to block the President’s agenda any way they can. This is the sole aim of this poisonous hate group.

    I think the K Brothers are very smart and very selfish “fishy” there greed and control of employee’s voting is not the American way and they will make a mistake and end up in jail. The Tea Party, Republicans were set up so these Rich brothers can control the government the one word they do not know is ETHIC’S. We have a government that works the American people voted a black man into office, that must kill you.
    I know you and 4 more years must be driving you “NUTS”.

    I’m conservative and checked on a story that Freedom Works posted about what the teachers were teaching in TX. I found their story to be false and contacted them about it. They said they would get back to me but never did so I quit following them on Twitter. No matter what side you’re on, you cannot spread propaganda.
