The Koch brothers reportedly made another financial commitment for the 2014 elections Monday, announcing a new super PAC called Freedom Partners Action Fund, according to Politico. The group will invest $15 million in the midterms, bringing the Kochs' total investment to a reported $290 million. That's estimated; the Kochs could spend as little as, say, $250 million. Which is probably more than you have to spend on elections. And still a ton of money. The Kochs, who favor conservative and libertarian causes, aren't alone, of course. Billionaire Tom Steyer has reportedly committed $100 million to back environmentally-friendly candidates this fall. That's $50 million of his own money and $50 million generated from other donors. But how much is that really? There are a number of metrics we could use; for example, you could buy 7.7 billion sheets of copy paper from Office Depot for the amount Steyer wants to spend on elections this fall, though Steyer probably wouldn't be happy about sacrificing all of those trees.
