Undemocratic Collusion Between the White House and the Country's Most Powerful Oligarchs
Bloomberg is reporting that the Koch Brothers are now running PR for the Trump administration's plan to cut billionaires' taxes.
Is this kind of outright collusion between the White House and the country's most powerful oligarchs really compatible with our democracy?

The Koch brothers are all in on Donald Trump's push for so-called tax reform.

As Bloomberg reports, the influential oligarchs are planning to spend millions in support of the president's plan to slash the corporate tax rate.
Their plan includes outright collusion with the Trump administration.
On Monday the Kochs' two biggest groups - Americans for Prosperity and Freedom Partners - hosted Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and White House Director of Legislative Affairs Marc Short at a pro-tax cut event here in Washington, DC.
Is this what a healthy democracy looks like - oligarchs colluding with a corrupt president to ensure that they get even wealthier?
