"Much of what the government spends money on does more harm than good; this is particularly true over the past several years with the massive uncontrolled increase in government spending. I believe my business and non-profit investments are much more beneficial to societal well-being than sending more money to Washington."

If Koch really believed this then he would return the federal subsidies Koch industries receives.

Many wealthy liberals that I know urge for higher tax rates. Nevertheless, none of them that I know - including Warren Buffett - pay higher tax rates than what is required by law. According to your logic, these people cannot "really" believe that there should be higher rates, because they would be currently sending more cash to Washington.

There is nothing hypocritical about Koch's positions and actions - just as those who pay the current tax rates while they urge for them to be raised are not hypocrites, etiher.
