Meanwhile, I imagine the sound of Aaron Sorkin typing Season 2 scripts for THE NEWSROOM that expand on the Koch Brothers' Tea Party/American Taliban/Operation Grand Slam scheme to take over America (punctuated only by the ding of a bell on his manual typewriter).
David Koch breaks from GOP on gay marriage, taxes, defense cuts
Billionaire industrialist David Koch, who is helping steer millions of dollars to elect Mitt Romney and congressional Republicans, on Thursday told POLITICO he disagrees with the GOP’s stance on gay marriage and believes the U.S. needs to consider raising taxes to balance the budget.
...The 1980 vice presidential nominee for the socially liberal – but fiscally conservative – Libertarian Party, Koch told POLITICO “I believe in gay marriage” when asked about the GOP’s stance on gay rights.
...As for whether military spending cuts should be on the table, Koch said, “I think to balance the budget, probably every federal department has to take cuts in my opinion. We have to spread it around.”
