  •  I am most disappointed in him because his wife (4+ / 0-)

    is a cancer survivor which I would like might give him some empathy for Americans who cannot get the care they need when facing a cancer diagnosis.  But apparently he is just another ridiculously rich, selfish Republican with no concern for his fellow Americans who do not have his advantages.

    •  Cancer survivors are a strange lot . .. (4+ / 0-)

      or, to expand the concept slightly, the Koch Brothers apparently gave a few million $$s of their ill gotten gains to build a cancer research facility at MIT.

      And then went on record crying crocodile tears when their teabagger cronies in Congress cut biomedical research funding:

      In his speech at the opening ceremony, Mr. Koch warned that government spending cuts could impede cancer research. And he urged donors to fill the gap.

      “The National Institutes of Health, and the National Cancer Institute in particular, are facing serious cutbacks in their funding due to the massive deficits the federal government is incurring,” he said in his speech, in a tent outside the seven-story building. “If the cutbacks happen, it will significantly diminish the level of research that can be carried on at the Koch Institute. I earnestly ask you to do all you can to help maintain the superb research at the Koch Institute at its maximum level.”
