    Want to skip buying Koch products? There will be an APP for that.

     

    I knew Brawny paper towels was one of their products but there are a whole lot of other things they produce. So if you want to buy or not buy Koch this app is in the works. I would definitely want it for my phone.

     


    From the article

     

    “Our democracy has been bought and sold by people like the Kochs,” Burner said, citing the Citizens United ruling that allows tax exempt nonprofits like Americans for Prosperity, founded by David Koch, to donate anonymously in unlimited amounts to candidates and causes. “When I’m out talking to voters, they say they want a way to take action.”

     

    At her recent Netroots Nation keynote address, Burner pitched her plan of action to an audience of progressive bloggers: a smartphone app allowing shoppers to swipe bar codes to check whether the Kochs, or other right-wing supporters, are behind a product on the shelves.
