Paris Exit Was ‘Victory Paid and Carried Out’ by Republican Party for Koch Brothers (Ted Cruz, Mitch McConnell made out like Bandits!)

The 22 Republican senators who sent a letter to President Donald Trump last week urging the United States’ withdrawal from the Paris climate agreement received more than $10 million dollars in campaign funds from fossil fuel interests.

The two-page letter was signed by a number of Republican heavyweights from coal/gas/oil-rich states, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma and Ted Cruz of Texas.

 

The 22 Republican signatories’ funding from Big Oil, Gas and Coal in the past three election cycles (2012, 2014 and 2016):

James Inhofe, Oklahoma, Oil & gas: $465,950 + Coal: $63,600 = $529,550

John Barrasso, Wyoming, Oil & gas: $458,466 + Coal: $127,356 = $585,822

Mitch McConnell, Kentucky, Oil & gas: $1,180,384 + Coal: $361,700 = $1,542,084
