How low will the Tea Party and the Kochs go?

COMING AFTER YOUR HEALTH CARE: Dick Morris and the Koch boys.
  • COMING AFTER YOUR HEALTH CARE: Dick Morris and the Koch boys.
The answer to the headline question is right here.

The Arkansas Tea Party and a Koch front group are sponsoring anti-health-care rallies July 13-14 in El Dorado, Hot Springs, Malvern and Stuttgart to whip up a frenzy about Obamacare and, incidentally, help Republican candidates. Details at the link.

Speakers: A representative of the corporate-funded Heartland Institute, foe of environmental regulation, global warming skeptic and defender of other things detrimental to living beings; Teresa Oelke, the Koch-paid shill for the Koch-financed Arkansas chapter of Americans for Prosperity who is a majority owner of a recently elected Arkansas senator when she's not trying to wreck water supply protection in Pulaski County; and, ta da, the reptilian toe-sucker Dick Morris, who needs no further introduction.

It's free. A good place to go cry, "Keep your hands off my health care." Because this bunch is intent on taking it from hundreds of thousands of Arkansans who'll otherwise benefit from the Affordable Care Act.
