Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Tuesday singled out the Koch brothers in an incendiary speech on the chamber floor, calling their involvement in politics “un-American” and accusing them of trying to use their wealth to undermine democracy.
His opening remarks stoked a feud that has grown nastier week by week as Democrats worry about their prospects in November’s elections.
Groups associated with Charles and David Koch, billionaire industrialists with deep ties to libertarian and conservative circles, have been running ads attacking Obamacare.
Mr. Reid’s Republican counterpart, Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, hinted that Democrats’ big-money backers could face the same sort of demonization that Mr. Reid doled out. It was a signal that the vicious back-and-forth over money’s role in politics is just getting started.
