The multi-billionaire Koch brothers, Charles and David, have waded deep into the 2016 presidential election with their pledge to spend a staggering $889 million on candidates who espouse their government-limiting views.
The promise threw Democrats into a tizzy, leveling charges that the Kochs are buying the presidency, but Rich Lowry, editor of the National Review, writing an opinion piece in Politico, doesn't see the Kochs as the big-money right-wing ogres the left makes them out to be.
"The left is so invested in trying to find a way to squeeze them (the Kochs) out of the political process because it instinctively hates anything being unregulated, including political activity in a free society," Lowry writes.
"Also, its attitude is 'influence for me, but not for thee.' The left, by and large, owns the media, academia, the big foundations and Hollywood. Compared with all of that priceless political and cultural influence, the spending of the Koch network is a pittance."
