There is no depth of depravity to which Republicans refuse to stoop to get their way, and the Koch Brothers, fathers of InsaniTEA, lead the pack in that area. Now they are bribing college students, some of whom may even be underage, with booze to oppose ObamaCare by refusing to sign up.
Billionaire Koch brothers funded groups Americans for Prosperity and Generation Opportunity are supplying University of New Hampshire students with free alcohol tonight to encourage them to oppose Obamacare and not sign up for health coverage.
The “Thirsty for Freedom” event will be held at the Dover Brickhouse just off campus. It provides students with two free drink tickets to hear about “big governments war on youth” and is hosted by Koch-funded AFP, Koch-funded Generation Opportunity, Young Americans for Liberty, and the College Republicans…

Hat-Tip to Jo (a regular, both here and at Care2) for telling me about this event.
This is not new for Republicans. For example, in election year 2004, I left work downtown and saw a group of transients gathered around two Republicans, wearing Bush/Cheney buttons. They had apparently previously registered the transients. The Republicans found each transients names in a stack of prefilled ballots, got their signature, and handed it to them. Each transient then took their ballot to a van parked at the curb and traded it for a six pack of beer or a bottle of wine. I yelled at them, and pulled out my cell phone, intending to take a picture. Before I could, the Republicans jumped into the van and drove away. Then I had to run, confronted with some very angry transients. One more thing, the Republicans were both wearing "Jesus Saves" buttons too. I guess Republican Supply-side Jesus (the polar opposite of the real Jesus) saves by shopping at the beer and wine wholesaler.
