Even though the Koch brothers have been involved in politics for a long time, they have only recently made the headlines during Obama’s term in office. As a result, there are plenty of myths that are believed about the Koch brothers. However, these myths can be easily exposed and fought. A lot of these myths are not flattering to the Koch brothers, but only because they are myths. One thing that Charles Koch is very passionate about is making sure the truth is known so that people can judge them more accurately.
Among the myths of the Koch brothers are five particular myths that are commonly believed about them. One myth is that the Koch Network has been formed in reaction to President Obama. The second myth is that only the Koch Brothers run the Koch Network. The third myth is that the Koch Network is just a front for their corporation. The fourth myth is that the Koch Network is merely a bank that funds conservatives.
Charles Koch, who is one of the Koch brothers believes in creating opportunity. Charles holds the belief that Welfare programs and other types of hand outs prolong the problems of poverty. Koch believes that welfare is a two-fold blow against progress for the unfortunate. For one thing, it takes away from the revenue that businesses generate which gets in the way of it providing wages to its workers. Koch instead hopes to inspire people to look for new opportunities and to think outside the box in order to bring forth better success to their lives. They also speak at events in order to talk about the importance of encouraging people to pursue financial independence.
