Deseret News: Koch Brothers Group Launches Campaign Against Healthy Utah

Koch Brothers GO HOME!

Stirring political heads-up via Utah State Senator James Dabakis:
Senator Jim Dabakis today called the Koch Brothers pouring of money into Utah a disgusting attempt by the richest of the rich to come to Utah and steal affordable health care from more than 100,000 struggling Utahns. These men are here to fight for their personal interests and not that of Utahns. Koch Brothers GO HOME! Utah has enough right-wingers, last thing the state needs is the Tea Party gassed up on Koch billions. The Koch front group, Americans for Prosperityopened a Utah chapter just two weeks ago. Already, they are spending money-attacking working Utah families with a campaign to kill Healthy Utah! That these carpetbaggers would march into Utah with their billions is a sad, sad day for our state! Charles and David Koch hit a milestone recently, as a $1.3 billion boost to their collective fortune sent their net worth above $100 billion, according to Bloomberg News They are now the fifth- and sixth-wealthiest people in the world, [Links added.]
Read the disturbing DNews story WCF readers:
DNews reader Don O perfectly nails it in the comments section, wethink:
The Koch Brothers and their minions are way out of line on this one. Healthy Utah makes all the sense in the world, especially to those members of Utah society who are the most vulnerable and needy. Kudos to Gary Herbert for putting it forward and for doing all he can to stick with it. By the same token, Greg Hughes and his acolytes should feel ashamed for opposing it. This initiative alone guarantees Governor Herbert, and any Hughes opponent, my full support.
Don't let the cat get your tongues, O Gentle Ones...
