Do Americans Even Know Who the Koch Brothers Are?

By Matt Vespa | April 14, 2014 | 4:54pm EDT

Last week, MRCTV's Dan Joseph decided to ask tourists in Washington D.C. if they ever heard of the Koch Brothers.  They're the billionaire brothers that have drawn the ire of liberals, specifically Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, for their supposed political influence via their donations.

While a few people knew who they were, many thought that Reid and company should focus on trying to run the country.  "There's a lot more bigger items that Congress needs to accomplish, like balancing the budget, putting people back to work than a publicity stunt against the Koch brothers," said one man.

Additionally, after all of Harry Reid's raging, it was discovered that he too accepted money from the Koch brothers.

In all, while many might not agree with the Koch brothers' political activities, it's still a legal exercise of their constitutional rights.  Sadly, for some members of Congress, they only see it as such if these one-percenters give to them, which makes Reid's diatribes hypocritical in the extreme.  Does anyone else think that Reid is rapidly becoming the elderly grandparent that needs to be sent to a home?
