EUGENE, Ore. (KMTR) -- The Stop the Greed Agenda bus made its way to Eugene Tuesday on a tour to educate voters about special interest spending before they hit the polls in November.
The main focus of the tour is to shed light on the spending of US billionaire brothers, David and Charles Koch.
Members of Patriot Majority USA say the Koch brothers and other special interests have a greed agenda for America, which only benefits the rich. They're hoping to get their Stop the Greed message out to the middle class so they'll make more educated decisions in the upcoming election.
They say the Koch brothers will contribute to higher gas prices, rising healthcare costs and policies that hurt the middle class the most.
"We're asking people to look behind the curtain of the Americans for Prosperity, the CATO Institute, the Heritage Foundation - look at some of these organizations that are driving a message and how it hurts middle class families,” says Sid Voorakkara, spokesperson for Patriot Majority USA. “T<objID>NEWS\00209464?version=1</objID><mosID>CAMIOKMTR</mosID><mohat's primary, and then look at how and where else, these billionaires are actually spending their money.”
The bus made stops on the LCC campus, at the U of O and in Springfield. They plan on visiting most of the country between now and the November election.
