The Koch Brother's spokesman tells the National Review Online they won't back down from the fight in Wisconsin:
“With the Left trying to intimidate the Koch brothers to back off of their support for freedom and signaling to others that this is what happens if you oppose the administration and its allies, we have no choice but to continue to fight,” says Richard Fink, the executive vice president of Koch Industries. “We will not step back at all. We firmly believe that economic freedom has benefited the overwhelming majority of society, including workers, who earn higher wages when you have open and free markets. When government grows as it has with the Bush and Obama administrations, that is what destroys prosperity.”
Gee, I guess it was open and free (and unregulated) markets that did so well in self-regulating the real estate mortgage bond market under Bush.
Glad to hear that the Governor has never spoken with the Kochs. Hope he doesn't read this article from NRO. Otherwise he may be afraid to compromise.
