Billionaire conservative donor David Koch dies at 79.

He and brother Charles poured a fortune into conservative causes transforming the American political landscape and shaping JUS policies on such issues as climate change and government regulations.

They never donated a dime that did not benefit them. Had the government continued their course of improving air and water quality changes to clean up both, would have cost the brothers billions to refurbish their plants.

They have a history of purchasing outdated plants for pennies on the dollar, as they did with the DuPont plant in Seaford. They pay their employees low wages, no benefits, and milk the plants dry.

The brothers formed numerous of Super Pacs where their month was moved to other Republican Pacs that did not identify them as donors.

David gave millions toward cancer research, again for his benefit. He dies of prostate cancer.

    • I know who Soros is, but like Trump you want distraction from the subject; Koch. He did what I said he did, successfully turning this country into the mess we have today. Union buster he was. Unions gave you and I benefits we have today, usually under Democrat leadership. I’m not a union member, but I know when unions survive, all of us do.
      I do not know the area you live, but if you are familiar with the former DuPont plant in Seaford, purchased by the Koch Brothers, producing the same product and compare the benefits, salaries and extra hours of work maybe, I doubt it, you’ll see my point. The plant needs environmental updates, but he fights them and with Trump as his ally he doesn’t have to worry about polluting our citizens because he was never around them.
      You point out but I don’t believe you took note of what I said, his lavishly donations to hospitals, were cancer hospitals. I don’t see any large gifts to St. Jude’s or other charity groups that help the needy, only high profile institutions where he would be hailed a hero.
      Sorry, bud, I have no respected for self interested people who pat themselves on the back.
