The Tea Party
Neither Charles nor David Koch fund the Tea Parties. They are involved with and support an organization, which in turn has involvement with some Tea Party members. Koch Industries encourages all citizens, including Tea Party members, to engage in civil discourse concerning the important public policy issues in the United States, most importantly the grave financial issues presented by the rampant overspending and growth of government in the past 10 years.
Partisan activists deliberately confuse Koch’s involvement with the Tea Parties in order to diminish and mischaracterize important and authentic citizen efforts as well as company support of education and human services programs.
