The #KochBrothers want “freedom” alright: freedom to poison our environment and sicken our kids without government interference. We cannot let them get their polluted hands on our Constitution! #NoConCon thinkprogress.org/to-block-epa-r… 1/
Oh look here! The #KochBrothers backed climate-change denier Scott Pruitt to head the EPA. 2/ ucsusa.org/publications/g…
In the midst of the Flint water crisis, House Speaker Paul Ryan wrote an op-Ed opposing the EPA’s Clean Water Act, which several #KochBrothers businesses had lobbied against. Because they want “freedom” to poison our water.

As explained in this @NYTimes op-Ed by @paulkrugman, “What the Koch brothers have bought with their huge political outlays is, above all, freedom to pollute.” Leave it to the #Kochs to ruin a word like “freedom.” 4/

Here’s an article about the close and ongoing relationship among Scott Pruitt (head of the EPA), the #Kochs, and #ALEC (the Koch Machine’s legislative arm that churns out model legislation making it easier for big industry to poison the environment). prwatch.org/news/2017/03/1…

As explained in this article, the #Kochs and #ALEC are behind the push for an Article V Convention of States aka Constitutional Convention to amend the US Constitution by adding a “Balanced Budget Amendment.” 6/ billmoyers.com/story/kochs-to…
But the #Kochs don’t really want a “Balanced Budget.” It’s a hoax! What they want is “freedom” from public accountability and social responsibility. The BBA is a ruse to eliminate the EPA and other federal agencies & programs like the DOE, the FDA, SS, Medicare, Medicaid, etc. 7/
Here’s a Thread on the push for Iowa to pass legislation calling for an Article V Convention of States (aka Constitutional Convention ) and how to stop it. #NoConCon 8/
