Reminder: Reid Also Blamed the Kochs for the Ukraine Crisis

In my last post I mentioned how Harry Reid tried to fault the Koch brothers for Republicans voting down a minimum wage hike in the Senate. It's worth noting that Reid has blamed just about everything bad that's happened over the last year on the Kochs. That includes the crisis in Ukraine.

Reid claimed:

It’s hard for me to comprehend how with a clear conscience they could say, ‘Ukrainians, we probably can’t help you because we’re trying to protect the Koch brothers.' And not only that, they’re saying to the American people that protecting the Koch brothers is more important than helping our country.

This all stems from the fact that the Republicans wanted a change in IRS rules for non-profits in exchange for the extensive aid package for Ukraine. Obviously, it was all due to the Kochs.

In addition, Reid’s own Senate website lists fourteen other “atrocities” that he blames on the Koch brothers, including air pollution, Iranian terrorism, public education, poor health care, and poverty.

Not sure if it’s the Kochs or the old age, but something has got a hold on Reid’s sanity and it’s quite a sight to behold.
