The Koch Brothers are the éminences grises who are founders and major contributors to the Tea Party and a host of other conservative corporatist groups. They favor a government aligned only to serve big companies and they believe in privatizing Social Security and Medicare/Medicaid. Currently, the Tea Party Republicans, whose campaigns were supported by the Kochs, are attacking unions and passing legislation around the country that allows big companies to purchase public utilities so that they can sell services back to the states at a higher price. In Michigan, the legislature has even authorized the governor to take over local towns, kick out elected officials and replace them with corporations if he deems that the city is having a “fiscal emergency”.
