    TAMPA, Fla. – Billionaire industrialist David Koch, who is helping steer millions of dollars to elect Mitt Romney and congressional Republicans, on Thursday told POLITICO he disagrees with the GOP’s stance on gay marriage and believes the U.S. needs to consider raising taxes to balance the budget.

    I agree with him on gay marriage. Tax increases would be okay with guaranteed spending cuts first. And not the cuts in increases which are considered cuts in Washington, I mean actual spending cuts.

    David Koch has been pro-gay marriage since at least 2003. In 2008 Obama said that marriage is between a man and a woman.

    Grover Norquist supports gay marriage.

    Sheldon Adelson is pro-choice.

    Ruppert Murdoch is pro-amnesty (and mildly anti-gun)


    The other strong political wing in the GOP, the Christian Right, is not libertarian. According to november exit polls, the public support for a tax hike on the rich was very similar in the Deep South and in New York and the North East (around 50%, and another 10-15% in favor of Clinton-era tax rates for everyone)
