I missed this story when it came out back in January.
The Koch brothers, two of the richest people on the planet are planning to spend nearly $900 million dollars during campaigning for the 2016 US presidential election.
Its pretty obvious that for people like the Koch brothers to be doing this, they consider that $900 million an investment
and expect to get a return on that investment.
Its possibly less obvious that if the Koch brothers are willing to pay this much to influence the political system, the way they wield that political influence will be good for them, but is extremely unlikely to be good for the majority of people in the US or the country as a whole. #USDemocracyForSale
