Editors' note: Mother Jones illustrator Zina Saunders creates editorial animations riffing on the political news and current events of the week. In this week's animation, Charles Koch is the magic man in the mirror, exhorting a poor schnook to protect the rights of his future billionaire self by voting against raising taxes on millionaires and billionaires. As Koch says, "Your present self may suffer, but your future self will thank you for your forethought!" As always, that's Zina Saunders doing her own voice work. Plus: eleven charts that show how the superrich spoil it for the rest of us.
