Koch Brothers accidentally promotes leftist agenda AGAIN!
A couple weeks ago a Koch Brothers study accidentally showed that Medicare For All would save the country $2 Trillion over 10 years, while covering everyone.
A few days later a Fox and Friends poll showed that their viewers overwhelmingly preferred Medicare For All.
Bernie Sanders' 'Medicare for all' bill estimated to cost $32.6 trillion, new study says. Would the benefits outweigh the costs?

So the Koch Brothers went out and commissioned a poll designed to show that the American people are actually libertarians just like the Koch Brothers.
There's just one little teensy problem.
For instance, the poll found that 66 percent of Americans would find “government-paid college tuition” as a “very effective” or “somewhat effective solution” to social barriers, with more than half of those lining up on the “very effective” side.
Americans For Prosperity, the Koch-funded political advocacy organization, campaigned against free college tuition in 2016, just as the idea was becoming a central plank of Bernie Sanders’s presidential campaign. AFP Wisconsin called it a “terrible idea,” while the state director of AFP Colorado called it “pie-in-the-sky.”
A $15 minimum wage was almost as popular in the poll, with 35 percent saying it would be a very effective solution and a further 30 percent saying it would be a somewhat effective solution.
The Kochs, and groups they financially back, have campaigned against minimum wage laws for decades. In 1980, when David Koch ran alongside Ed Clark on the Libertarian Party ticket, aiming to become vice president, their platform included a promise to abolish all minimum wage laws...
A third of respondents believe that more regulation of Wall Street would be very effective, while 36 percent said it would be somewhat effective. Nearly seven in 10 respondents said increasing government assistance for child care would be a very or somewhat effective policy response to social barriers.
The top concern of those polled is the growing cost of health care, with 92 percent saying it is a problem. A combined 55 percent said a government-run health care system would be a very or somewhat effective policy response.
The idea of government run health care would be completely intolerable to the Koch network.
At this rate the Koch brothers are doing more benefits than harm to socialism in America. So keep spending millions on those studies.
It's hilarious to see that the Koch brothers' billions can't change reality.
They seem to be honestly miffed that the working class of America just don't see the world like they do.
