Billionaire industrialist Charles Koch is launching a campaign to sink a border tax under consideration by Republican leaders in Congress, a move that could complicate the lawmakers' efforts to find a way to pay for President Donald Trump's proposed wall on the U.S. border with Mexico.
Americans for Prosperity, a conservative political advocacy group founded by Charles Koch and his brother David, plans to use its network of wealthy political donors and activists to kill the proposal, which aims to raise $1.2 trillion over 10 years on goods coming into the United States, according to officials from the group, which gathered this weekend for a conference.

Give us names and addresses of these donors.
We’ll handle the rest.
Open borders RINOs sell us out again.
Murdoch is on the board of an open boarders group. Fox attacked Trump during the campaign and - look at Daily Mail and NY Post closely - still attacks him.
Only Hannity, Dobbs, and Judge Jeanine were Trump backers.
Crony buttwipes don’t want to see the gravy train end.
It’s so painfully obvious where this pushback is coming from. The Koch’s and the Tech’s are in alignment.
Rinos don’t know how to negotiate and don’t know the art of the deal.
Koch brothers love the cheap labor in Mexico. They could not care less about the dwindling middle class, with $800,000,000,000 foreign trade deficit EVERY YEAR. All it matters to Koch's is their profits, while the vast hard working middle class is being squeezed. What a bunch of un-patriotic selfish bastages.
Americans for Prosperity, the Club for Growth and the Chamber of Commerce are front groups for the Cheap Labor Express.
These greedy, rich bastards didn’t support PRESIDENT Trump. To hell with them.
But we’re building a service economy! /Absolute sarcasm
Draining the swamp includes the Kock slush fund.
I think there are better ways to pay for the Wall.
Screw you Koch Brothers. Its time inact an to import tax and reduce corporate and other taxes in America.
Import tax should equal the amounts exporter saves via cheaper wages and regulatory scheme in in the exporting nation versus manufacturing in the United States.
If other importing nations want to enact exact same import tax, perfect. Time to level playing field for FAIR TRADE.
I am going to spend some time researching these typical scumbag republicans (koch brothers) so that I can spend the rest of my life NOT buying any damn thing that they make, sell or are involved. We need to put all of these profits over country scum out of business!
And Stuart Varney.
Oh yeah, because import taxes to finance our military is sooo bad... The Koch prefer the Americans to be enslaved in income and export taxes instead... it pads their wallets of corporate welfare
They are libertarians.
The Koch are mainly in welfare housing for illegals. Their resorts lose money so they put illegals
in there. It is a country club bunch of products. Maybe boycott golf
courses? I think they got this business
A border tax is a tax increase. The cost will be passed along to consumers, depressing sales in both countries. That means job losses and higher prices.
