Libertarian billionaire Charles Koch says he now regrets funding Tea Party-aligned groups because it deepened partisan tensions in the United States.
'Boy, did we screw up!' the 85-year-old Koch says in a forthcoming book, according to The Wall Street Journal. 'What a mess!'

Doesn’t sound very smart.
And this a-hole thinks Democrats will turn into Scrooges’? What a doofus.
Kochie should move to Californicate
Or even better, Venezuela
No Tea Parties et al there
Yes, and they fund (and funded) lots of hard-left Dems.
Go join your brother ya big dope!
No better than Soros.
Tea Party got run over and buried by the GOPe backstabbing before President Trump came along. Koch(s) are ashoe.
Just look at Paul Ryan and his involvement in changing Fox news.
Thank Goodness he never became Vice President then President
I regret buying products from Georgia Pacific
The problem with the TEA party is that it became the the right wing agenda party. If they had stuck to taxes and spending it could have had a long life.
But it tried to pick up other balls and run with them. It lost its wide support.
The quicker Koch dies, the better.
The Cuck Brothers are determined to get the Left to love them. A few of them might be up for sale.
The left-wing establishment GOP stabbed them right after using them to get elected.
Get ready to be up to your eyeballs in Caravan Illegals
There’s only one Cuck Brother now.
We are now beyond the spending limits. The end of the republic is nigh.
No matter who it is.... stopping fraud, waste, and abuse of tax dollars is often promised but never prevails.
Raising taxes is easy, cuts in spending to off set the waste of tax dollars never happens.
Obama destroyed EVERYTHING he touched
He didn’t think we could elect anyone who would do what’s right for the citizens.
Bush League Republican (Democrats in R jerseys) control of the GOP was supposed to produce Designated Losers or Bush League Presidents who would continue the Bush Plan for North Mexico (aka USA).
Trump took them by surprise.
