What the what? David Koch says GOP has gone too far on taxes

koch cash pileDavid Koch, one half of the pair of billionaire brothers who have pumped millions into the Republican infrastructure, admitted today that even he thinks that the Republican Party has strayed too far too the right:

Koch said he thinks the U.S. military should withdraw from the Middle East and said the government should consider defense spending cuts, as well as possible tax increases to get its fiscal house in order – a stance anathema to many in the Republican Party.

I think it’s essential to be able to achieve spending reductions and maybe it’s going to require some tax increases,” he said. “We got to come close to balancing the budget, otherwise we’re in a terrible deep problem.”

Koch’s disagreement with the GOP’s hard right turn must not be too serious, however. According to Politico, Koch-backed groups still play to spend $400 million this election cycle to buy control of the federal government for Republicans.
