    Americans for Prosperity is a front group for the Koch brothers. This group was formed 11 years ago by people who were already prosperous, and they work to become more so on the backs of low and middle income wage workers. The economic lives of the poor and middle class have been in a downward spiral during this same period of time. Members of American for Prosperity support every bit of legislation that makes lives harder for those trying to eke out a living. They despise Unions and work to destroy them. They don’t want any protections for workers. They despise people on welfare, and rather than give them a hand up, they stomp down on them with their Berluti Handmade Shoes, or whatever other brand of fancy-man shoes that the Koch brothers and their wealthy pals wear. They believe in the fantasy of trickle down economics and blame the poor for being poor. They spend millions of their unearned (inherited) income on poisoning the minds of the naive to vote with them to help destroy democracy and replace it with a plutocracy. And they are succeeding. The USA has become a country of the rich, for the rich, by the rich…thanks to the Citizens United Ruling; corrupt, secretive campaign financing; and gerrymandering by the party in rule. Our election process is broken, and appears to have become a reality entertainment show rather than a solemn civic duty. This country is in real trouble and Americans for Prosperity, and other Koch backed organizations are a big part of the problem.
