The Koch Brothers Echo Chamber

Brave New Foundation with Senator Bernie Sanders [I-VT] and the Strengthen Social Security Campaign want to expose the Koch Echo Chamber.
The Koch brothers want to destroy Social Security because it is a Federal government program which has been enormously successful.  The Koch brothers are funding think tanks and other organizations which are spreading an enormous amount of disinformation about Social Security. The Koch Brothers fund organizations and you have  economist and political scientist working there. They are very good getting on TV and people not know they represent an organization that is heavily funded by corporate interest.  They are very effective of getting their message out into the media.  At the same time the Koch brothers are putting huge amounts of money into campaign contributions so you have an echo chamber that starts repeating a lot of misinformation.
#1: Need to Raise the Age of Retirement
#2: Social Security is going bankrupt
#3: Privatize Social Security
#1:  Raising the retirement age is a terrible idea and a large benefit cut.
#2:  Social Security will never go bankrupt.
#3:  Privatizing Social Security would be a disaster.
The Koch Goal is to Dismember Government
The Koch brothers want to privatize Social Security to invest your retirement funds on Wall St. and you may lose all of your retirement savings when you get old. The Koch brothers' job is to do everything they can to dismember government in general and if you can destroy Social Security you have gone a long way in that effort.
