A sickness is spreading across America! Families are in crisis. Jobs are down, foreclosures are up and folks are struggling to make ends meet. The middle class is under attack. For the first time ever, families in America don’t believe their children will have a better life than their parents.  

This infection of the body politic is driven by a handful of big corporations and greedy billionaires like the Koch brothers.

The Kochs are the masterminds and funders of the Tea Party, climate change denial, and the worst corporate front groups from the 2010 election. Now, thanks to Citizens United (a Koch brothers top priority), they are poised to unleash a pandemic of corporate corruption on our democracy.

On January 30, 2011, the Koch brothers and a cabal of other wealthy and powerful elites will be meeting behind closed doors in Rancho Mirage, CA (close to Palm Springs), to plot their strategy to take power in 2012 and dominate American political life.
