Why Do People Hate the Koch Brothers? Their Political Influence Does Not Sit Well With Many Americans

By

Billionaire industrialist David Koch has passed away at the age of 79. “It is with a heavy heart that I announce the passing of my brother, David,” Charles Koch said in a statement. “Anyone who worked with David surely experienced his giant personality and passion for life.” 

According to Forbes, David was the 11th-richest person in the world with an estimated net worth of $42 billion. In a statement, his brother Charles explained that David had been battling prostate cancer for 27 years. 

“David liked to say that a combination of brilliant doctors, state-of-the-art medications, and his own stubbornness kept the cancer at bay. We can all be grateful that it did, because he was able to touch so many more lives as a result,” he said.
