The Koch brothers fueled the conservative Tea Party movement that vigorously opposes Barack Obama, the US president. They fund efforts to derail action on global warming, and support politicians who object to raising taxes on corporations or the wealthy to help fix America’s fiscal problems. They are so rich that their pockets are almost bottomless, and they can keep pouring money into this whole process".

The Kochs founded and provide millions to Americans for Prosperity, a political organisation that builds grassroots support for conservative causes and candidates. Americans for Prosperity, which has 35 state chapters and claims to have about two million members, has close ties to Tea Party groups and played a key role in opposing Obama's health care initiative. Members of the House Energy and Commerce Committee that the Kochs supported have taken the lead in opposing US Environmental Protection Agency efforts to reduce global warming emissions.

The Kochs contributed to 62 of the 87 new members of the US House of Representatives in 2010. Rich just because there are a few feudal landlords(like the Kochs) who own every thing and are very rich, so they say the country's rich, when most of the people are mere serfs, slaves, peons and peasants on the land, like South America! There is also a broader definition, as described by Marc Bloch (1939), that includes not only warrior nobility but the peasantry bonds of manorialism, sometimes referred to as a "feudal society".
