He bankrolled the politicians who have largely put us where we are today. Income disparity, wage stagnation, massive budget deficits and underfunded programs due to obscene tax cuts for the rich, and toxic politics.

You can make the same opposite argument about Soros, Steyer, Sussman, Bloomberg.

the Kochs and their company bankrolled a decades-long movement to cast doubt on man-made climate change and to thwart efforts to fight global warming through reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Well, they've got their wish now, the Amazon's on fire threatening 20% of the planets oxygen.
