Charles thinks he's the right person to tell us how to fix our economy, but he and his brother have exactly zero credibility to say we should be happy living the Koch brothers' version of the American dream (for people not named "Koch"): working in low-wage jobs with no benefits while wearing a smile. And here's why.
The Koch-brothers-funded Americans for Prosperity spearheaded a letter claiming that 117 organizations oppose reviving wind-energy tax breaks that expired at the end of 2013. The Energy and Policy Institute discovered that a majority of the groups have ties to the Koch brothers or other fossil-fuel interests.
In addition to the escalating cost of dental care, a big reason why many Americans don't get the checkups and preventive care they need is the growing shortage of dentists in the U.S. We need 6,000 new dentists to eliminate the shortage. There's little chance we'll get them, however, at least anytime soon.
