Tea Party Stand-Off: How Much Did Koch Bros Make? by AL MARTIN (AL MARTIN RAW.COM)
(10-17-13) Excerpt from "Political Brinksmanship... Just Wait Until January" --
The intransigence of these Tea Party Republicans would suggest that either they're in fantasyland -- and the people that support them which are mostly Bovobs (Burned Out Victims of Bushonomics) -- but the money comes mostly form the Koch Brothers or the Heritage Foundation.
This would suggest that the Koch Brothers have accumulated enormous short positions because the only way that "the money" behind the Tea Party which supports what they are doing is obviously going to turn a profit. The Koch Brothers wouldn't be funding the Tea Party unless there was a profit for them.
That's what it comes down to -- who profits?
When this thing gets passed, there's going to be a big short squeeze. That happens every day in the markets when there's supposed to be a "good word," you see rallies.
And then there's going to be a final rally when there's going to be a shorting opportunity after the rally peters out.
