NYT: Meet the Billionaires behind the Anti-union Movement

The New York Times has a piece uncovering the two billionaires behind the anti-union drives in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Indiana and Ohio. David and Charles Koch are behind Americans For Prosperity, a group that has provided funding for the anti-union drive. The Koch brothers are principals in Koch Industries, one of the country's largest private corporations.

While Americans for Prosperity has been lobbying for deregulation of the oil and gas industries and against climate and energy taxes, the Koch Industries homepage is rife with "green" imagery and environmental platitudes. Under a claim of fair use, I'm embedding a beautiful picture from the environment page.

Here's Rachel Maddow with a rebuttal.
