With WalkerCon, Aren't We Due For Another Koch Editorial?

In case you didn't notice, the Koch brothers have been non-existent about Gov. Scott Walker's crony collectivist deal with Foxconn since their local political machinery, Americans for Prosperity-Wisconsin, issued an empty toothless response against Walker's taxpayer-funded $3 billion wealth transfer package back in early August.

Since that early tepid rebuttal, I have not seen one web banner, radio or newspaper ad from the group taking on Walker for his obviously wrong-headed plan to transform Wisconsin into a government-run train-to-the-job collectivist-funded economy.

However, it should also be noted that Charles Koch, in the final years of the Obama presidency, wrote a couple editorials that for all descriptions and intentions, slammed those who participate in or promote government-run train-to-the-job collectivist-funded economies and America's steadily expanding two-tiered society.

Of course I can't speak for the Koch brothers or how they reconcile any of those beliefs with their continued unwavering support for Scott Walker. Adding to an embarrassment they want to avoid is likely the fact that Walker was their favorite to win the republican nomination for president in 2016. Imagine that.

So, to answer the title question: No, the Koch brothers will not write an editorial attempting to align their belief system against Scott Walker or the WalkerCon deal in Wisconsin. Don't look for it. Instead, they might write about how important it is for Congress to support their idea of "tax reform," but that too might be unnecessary and possibly counter-productive given that they also currently own the biggest phony in Washington DC doing all the necessary speaking for them.

In the coming months, watch for the Kochs to pivot away publicly from Scott Walker and Paul Ryan to protect them while writing a fat check to insure their chance for re-election.
