LTE in response to editorial article by Holly and Doug Deason: What do the Koch brothers want? To defend the American dream

Yet another article trying to justify the Koch brothers $1B pledge to buy the next election. The Koch brothers and their corporate and rich friends do not just want smaller government – they want no government. No Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Minimum Wage, and Regulatory Agencies that protect citizens (ex. FDA, OSHA, Consumer Product Safety Commission, and EPA).

We all want better, more efficient government. I would rather be able to vote on that government than have the very rich decide my government. Let us all be careful so “that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth”. Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address.
