A corporate front group, Americans for Prosperity, is running ads attacking Rep. Tom Perriello (D-VA) & dozens of other Democrats for supporting the economic recovery package that kept the recession from becoming Great Depression II. So what’s AFP’s idea of great economic policy? Shipping jobs to China & lining their own pockets with the salaries of those out of work Americans. Via TPM, here’s some pushback from the campaign of Rep. Zack Space (D-OH):
Koch Industries is one of the biggest funders of corporate front groups — particularly anti-consumer, anti-science, pro-polluter astroturfing — in American history. It’s also a proud funder of the Tea Parties. And it’s funny how Republicans keep attacking the economic recovery package while simultaneously trying to take credit for its effects, isn’t it?
