Charles and David: Our nation is not for sale

The self-interested, ultraconservative Koch machine is undermining and corrupting our democracy by drowning out the voices of the rest of us.

That’s why I’ve made a video to help explain America’s giant Koch problem—and explore what we can do about it.

I hope you’ll take a look.

Charles and David Koch personify everything that’s wrong with big money in politics. This summer, MoveOn is working to ensure that the hundreds of millions of dollars they plan to spend in the upcoming election cycle becomes a searing political liability.

If you agree that it’s high time America told the Koch brothers that our nation is not for sale, please share the video with your friends.

Thanks for standing up for democracy.

BOTTOM LINE: Too many working Americans – both women and men – are living paycheck to paycheck, struggling to make ends meet and respond to the competing demands of work and family. We need policy solutions like paid family leave, equal pay, child care, and a higher minimum wage, that can make a real difference in the lives of working families and ensure America’s global competitiveness in the coming decades.
