The Kochs never sleep: million-dollar campaign against Obamacare

Posted By on Mon, Jul 8, 2013 at 6:19 AM

The New York Times reports on a million-dollar ad campaign by the Koch-financed Americans for Prosperity to continue to sow doubts, confusion and resistance against implementation of Obamacare. Interesting that Arkansas doesn't appear to be targeted, even though half the Republican legislative caucus joined the vote to implement Obamacare here.

The article reports an estimate that a half-BILLION has already been spent by groups opposing health care insurance expansion and that another half-billion will be spent.

UPDATE: Sarah Kliff in the Washington Post has good answers for the questions posed in the Kochs' misleading ads.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
