Owner's Box

With the extreme wing of the Republican party in Texas, name calling doesn't end in the third grade. From the Empower Texas PAC to the Texas Public Policy Foundation, from the Club for Growth to Grover Norquist's Wednesday Group, all of these groups share a single philosophy — “to cut government in half in twenty-five years to get it down to the size where we can drown it in the bathtub” — and share most of the same paymasters.

So, how do all these groups get funded? Why is the message the same and what do they want? What's the real deal on the far right?

The real deal is the Owner's Box.
