While the Mainstream Media is still obsessed with the “tea party” and their “grassroots” influence on the recent election, we have documented extensively about the “astroturf” roots of the tea party, especially the Koch Brothers money(examples here).
Now the first day of Congress and who was there to collect his chips, but David Koch himself. As Alternet points out, Tea Party Billionaire(now there is an oxymoron) David Koch was not only in attendance for John Boehner’s swearing in, he also hosted a party for all of his minions that evening. He did not waste any time in letting the new “tea party” candidates know who exactly they were working for. FYI: its not you and I! I can’t wait until the vote to raise the debt ceiling and see how many “tea party” candidates cave and vote to do so.
