Tillis & The Kochs Support An Anti-Middle Class Agenda That Cuts Taxes For The Wealthy While Ending Medicare As We Know It

Tillis Pushed Koch Agenda Through North Carolina Legislature, Now The Kochs Are Trying To Buy Him A U.S. Senate Seat

Thom Tillis and the out-of-state billionaire Koch brothers are rigging the system against North Carolina’s middle class so they can elect Thom Tillis to do their bidding. Both the Koch brothers and Tillis endorsed the fringe Ryan plan which would cut taxes for the wealthiest while paying for it by turning Medicare into a voucher system and raising costs on seniors. Tillis said the fringe Ryan plan was “absolutely” comparable to what he would push in North Carolina.

As the leader of the North Carolina legislature, Tillis rammed through the Koch agenda, cutting taxes for the wealthiest and corporations while making middle class families pay for it with cuts to schools and higher taxes. In return, the Koch brothers-backed Americans for Prosperity have now run a whopping $8.3 million in ads in North Carolina, more than any state in the country. The Koch brothers are spending a fraction of their fortune to attack Kay Hagan and prop up Thom Tillis because they know he will put the reckless Koch agenda ahead of North Carolina if elected to the Senate.

“The Koch brothers are spending millions to buy Thom Tillis a U.S. Senate seat because he has championed their fringe agenda as the leader of the North Carolina legislature and will do the same if elected to the Senate,” said Justin Barasky, a spokesman at the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. “Thom Tillis and the Koch brothers are rigging the system against the middle class and they want to give more tax breaks to billionaires like the Kochs by turning Medicare into a voucher program that raises costs on seniors. As Speaker,  Tillis cut taxes for the wealthy and big corporations and made middle-class families pay for it with education cuts and higher taxes, now he wants to do the same thing in the Senate.”
