The Koch brothers especially Charles Koch and David Koch have not been in the media and political limelight for a long time; since back in the 1980s when David vied for a political position but lost. Their open agenda has now been analyzed to coming up with myths about their political side of life. The Koch especially Charles Koch were noticed not long ago because of funding political campaigns for the Republican supporters with huge sums of money. This was an aspect that has been facing lots of criticism from the Democrats especially Bernie Sanders, who does not like the fact that politics is being materialized financially. Charles Koch has since 2010 been attending television interviews and writing his op-eds in the Washington post. His recent opinion was in support of a Democrat, who is against the inequality in America.
Myths about the Koch brothers have been made; these myths are technically not all right because of the anonymity of the Koch brothers for a long time. For example, the myth that the Koch brothers are a recent network formed in reaction to the Obama’s presidency. The Koch brothers have for a long time been trying to come up with reformations of the American politics since 1973. They have been giving to minority political parties but expanded to funding lobby groups who push for policies they see as right and preferable. In 2003 during the era of Bush, the Koch were in support of Medicare care policies after they saw the activities of Bush and decided to get involved in politics.
The Koch brothers support policies regarding environmental sustainability hence the myth that they push for policies favoring their business with oil since they are a major distributor of oil products. Unfortunately, the truth behind their agenda is to reduce taxes, loosen government imposed rules and regulations that may hinder the activities of the unions of workers. Koch has over time seen the burden behind the common person and middle incomes to the imposed policies by politicians and top business persons.
Charles Koch is the chairperson, chief executive officer, and a board member of the Koch Industries one of the largest corporations in America. He has overtime advocated and funded groups supporting environmental policies that are favoring environmental sustainability. The system he says should favor rehabilitation of the incarcerated back to the society by not limiting their opportunities.
