They are the ones who encourage reducing social welfare programs and reducing taxes, in the name of freedom. They are the ones who sunk the first AHCA bill with the freedom caucus. With 400 million earmarked for the 2018 election, they are assured to be a major political force for conservatism in the years to come.

How did they sink a bill that was passed?

The bill was amended with input from the freedom caucus before it passed in May.

If it passed in the House how did it get sunk? 'Sunk', in this context, means 'not passed'. Also, it wouldn't be the 'first AHCA', that would be Obamacare.

Koch, the Soros of the Right.

Planning for more corporate welfare, all the while their voters will be more marginalized namely in rural areas, but who cares they aren't their rich voters who will donate to them!

The first AHCA didn't have the votes to pass the House.

Just like George Soros, these types of people believe the governments of the world should bow to them and their all mighty dollar$. The system is "bendable" and moldable in their eyes, and they see opportunity to reap massive profits if they are successful.

F 'em

Why am I not surprised?

Those two men are worse than George Soros. Period.

I don't care what your augment is, and I don't want to hear it from any one.

Let's turn America into an under-developed, backwards, 3rd world-former super power. Well, except for the wealthiest 1%. They can all afford to spend most of their time outside of the USA in Dubai and other fancy places.

America: Full of selfish, immature asshats who love authority, hate science, hate intellectuals but love a 2,000 year old religion. A religion started by some dudes in the Middle East, a place they continually bomb the hell out of.

The KOCH Brothers want REPEAL..but not REPLACE.

::Officials with the conservative U.S. political network overseen by the Koch brothers say they are unhappy with the healthcare bill that may be voted on by the Senate this week and will lobby for changes to it.

At a weekend event with conservative donors, top aides to Charles Koch, the billionaire energy magnate, said the Senate bill does not go far enough to dismantle former President Barack Obama's signature healthcare law, also known as Obamacare. “We have been disappointed that movement has not been more dramatic toward a full repeal,” said Tim Phillips, president of Americans for Prosperity, a grassroots advocacy group backed by Charles Koch and his brother, David.

Phillips and other aides to the Koch network told Reuters they want to see the Senate bill do more to roll back Obamacare's expansion of the Medicaid program for poor and disabled Americans. They also contend the bill does not do enough to reform the U.S. healthcare system and cut costs.""

Congress should make tax-cuts optional. Apparently, some are still smarting from Hillary losing and don't want anything that the Trump administration puts forward. So...allow them to keep paying current rates. Not a problem!
