You'd almost think this is from an Onion article:

Koch's top deputy in New Jersey, a named Steve Lonegan, who heads the local AFP state chapter, called the aid package a "disgrace." "This is not a federal government responsibility," Lonegan told reporters. "We need to and be responsible for taking care of ourselves."

I'm telling you, when I first saw the headline I read the article expecting sarcasm.  Sadly, no sarcasm present.  Just a whole lot of rich and privileged douchebaggery.

I'm sure that will ensure the reelection of those candidates, right? Koch already has his. Unfortunately he also has yours too.

I hope his insurance is cancelled and he gets diagnosed with metastasized pancreatic cancer.

While he's entitled to his opinion, the direct and sweeping attempt to blackmail congress is outright criminal, and might even be seditious.

Oddly enough the borough in New Jersey that Steve Lonegan lives in and use to be mayor of suffered almost no damage in Sandy

Steve is blind, so at least he cannot see how wrong he is

Why couldn't that nutter in upstate New York have tried starting a Koch brother's house or company on fire?  There are so many truly evil people in the world that would make better targets than volunteer firefighters.

Anyone ever uncover government handouts to this asshat?  Anyone that wealthy has almost surely received a subsidy of some sort.

They're nothing but shysters.  They've gotten billions in corporate welfare, made deals with Joseph Stalin, Hugo Chavez and other regimes, demanded taxpayer bailout of a failed refinery and lots of other stuff that would make Montgomery Burns green with envy.

I'm sure if you look when he was mayor he got just as much pork barrel spending as the next guy.

/Ron Paul is a queen of pork barrel spending

Somehow the smaller government types are a reverse NIMBY, smaller government expect for the programs I use! We need a term for them other then hypocrites. I guess they are NIMBY's cuts but not in our back yard...

  It's only a hand out when it helps the poor.  When aid goes to the rich, it's pure boot-strappy goodness.

He spent $125 MILLION of his own money trying to unelect Obama.

I doubt he uses health insurance. Making him one of the millions uninsured.

Someone posted a series of cartoon panels about her recently. They were about how she died poor, on welfare, with her former "Objectivist" friends treating her as an embarrassment. It was Christmas, so I didn't look it up to see if it was true. I wouldn't say it made me happy, but it did have a poetic justice to it.

It almost makes me happy for Citizens United. I get a warm fuzzy feeling just thinking about the millions they spent on Romney's failed campaign, even if it is just chump change to them.

His idiot brother wrote an op-ed a while back whining about all the free things other people get. Here's an article about five free things these miserable shiatheels get or have attempted to get on the backs of the taxpayers

These two Kochsuckers can go blow a goat. I hope a tree falls on them.

While the article called the letter a "warning" it was basically a threat. Do what I want or I will drop a ton of money on your opponent come election time. There's not even an attempt to hide the fact that the Tea Party is for sale.

I don't know about all that, but I know she did take Medicare benefits later in her life because of medical issues. The only people who think you can make something of yourself via your own boostraps are the people who never actually needed to try.

Owning a chain of hospitals tends to offset that, though

see, this is why they lose. they keep pissing off people who vote. there's a lot of people who vote Republican who are affected or know someone affected and they will remember stuff like this. yeah bastard you may have billions but you can only saturate the airwaves so much with your money before diminishing returns make it impossible for you to woo as many votes as you lose with stupid remarks like this.
 
2012-12-26 06:36:29 PM  
An announcement on the group's website says that the vote next week for the Sandy aid package will be a "key vote"-meaning senators who support sending money for reconstruction could face an avalanche of attack ads in their next election.

By all means, please go ahead with the attack ads on people voting to help Hurricane Sandy victims.

The right-wing in the USA has opposed federal aid for disaster areas for quite a while now. It doesn't seem to particularly change how people vote though.

Remember the GOP opposition to helping after the tornado that hit Joplin about 18 months ago? The county it's in went to Mitt Romney, Todd Akin, a Republican for the district's House seat, the Republican running against Jay Nixon, and voted Yes on the Health care exchange ban.

It's like watching a dog owner repeatedly kicking his dog and the dog stays loyal to the owner nonetheless. Except these GOP shenanigans are slightly more amusing.
