Five members of the US Senate were 100% reliable votes for the Koch Brothers right wing agenda in 2011, Think Progress reports. Guess who made the list?
"Our" Senator, Ron Johnson, aka RoJo the Clown.
But it wasn't a one-way street, Think Progress notes. The Senators who gave the Kochs their votes also got $187,400 in campaign contributions from Koch forces. Johnson sold oout more cheaply than the rest, getting $27,000, but he's new and will no doubt up the ante next time.
[Americans for Prosperity] judged Congress on their votes to protect the Koch brothers’ right-wing petrochemical empire on such issues as the repeal of President Obama’s new health care law, preempting EPA’s authority to regulate greenhouse gases, Chairman Paul Ryan’s budget to end Medicare, ending ethanol subsidies, several Congressional Review Act resolutions of disapproval to overturn new regulations and the fiscal year 2012 appropriations bills.
In the House, Wisconsin Rep. Reid Ribble also scored 100% to make the Wall of Shame.
