No reason to particularly HATE them. They are using their money to advocate for their own financial well-being. They are doing what I expect about 80% of most people to do, which is to look out for their own damn selves. When they pay huge $$ for GOP leaders, it's because they are going to be getting back BIGGER $$$$ in return in the form of tax cuts, lower min wages, dumping regs, and various other things that will make them money. We invest in the markets. They invest in the gov't. All are seeking to grow their net worth. I can't hate them for it, but I can be very much against that tactic and will shout all day long that many Repub voters such as people like Kevin are voting strongly against their own interests, since guys like the Kochs are convincing you to elect people that will make them richer and lessen the economic power of people like us.
