Paul Ryan and the Mega-Donors

New York Times: "When Mr. Romney announced that Mr. Ryan would be his running mate, his campaign emphasized the congressman's detailed knowledge of the federal budget and his chemistry with Mr. Romney. Less well-known are Mr. Ryan's close ties to the donors and activists who have channeled Tea Party anger into a $400 million political machine, financed by a network of conservative and libertarian donors that now rivals, and occasionally challenges, the Republican establishment behind Mr. Romney."

"Mr. Ryan is one of a very few elected officials who have attended the Kochs' biannual conferences, where wealthy donors sit in on seminars on runaway government spending and the myths of climate change."
