The Koch Brothers, members of the 2nd wealthiest family in the U.S., are a mysterious part of American politics. Who are the Koch Brothers and what do they want?
The Koch Brothers have spent billions of dollars on influencing politics to push their Conservative and Libertarian agenda. They have also funneled millions of dollars into the education system. The brothers believe social security should be privatized, the minimum wage should be abolished, Medicare and welfare should be cut, and taxes on the rich should be reduced. Senator Bernie Sanders believes the Koch brothers want to turn American society into an oligarchy.
