The US Chamber of Commerce pretty much now supports ObamaCare. No surprise, really, as the Chamber supports Illegal Alien Amnesty, Open Borders, and Trading with the Enemy.

Why anyone hooks up with the Chamber is beyond me...

They don’t call them the Chamber of Commies for nothing.

The scary thing is that some folks on here think the Collective of Communists are “conservative”.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has long been a tool of the left.

It’s the Local Chamber of Commerce that representatives care about. The local guys can help get locals to vote, and they are usually much much more conservative then even many of the Representatives from their area because they support small local business and lower taxes.

So all this news is going to do is remove the last layer of doubt about the National Chamber of commerce and it’s loyalties.

They hook up with the Chamber of Commerce because the CofC especially at the National level is the watering hole for corporate pigs of industry. I doubt any level of CofC truly represents ordinary citizens it is all for business ,not street Joes.

Unfortunately a lot of the local C of C are influenced by the national group. The local chapter here in Orlando area also pushes Illegal Alien Amnesty

Nothing like a good game of “$hutdown” to bring all the roaches into the light.

Because Zero had a public spat with them in 2009/2010. People automatically assumed the Chamber were the good guys.

Not so much.

Chamber loves Obama...Obama supports Illegal Alien Amnesty, Open Borders, and Free Trade. Chamber’s Big Business Socialists also love ObamaCare

Money is EVERYTHING to politicians and the DC establishment...Because almost all of them are lawyers the’ve learned how to steal with a pen instead of a gun. Get regular guys into politics and minimize the lawyers (who are usually born with silver spoons in their mouths and have no cluewhat it feels like to be poor) and you will get rid of a large percentage of the corruption.

Money from the CoC doesn't have nearly the power that it used to, because as we saw with both the CoC and Koch Bros. sponsorship of Amnesty, even a hundred million dollars in advertising is a complete was of money if you're targeting principled opponents.

The Tea Party delivers money and votes. The CoC delivers only money. That's not enough any more.

Open up the H1B visa program to third-world lawyers and watch how fast the demand for “skilled immigrants” implodes.

Yep...and the COC is scurrying right there with all of them.

They can give them all the money they want. But they can’t buy my vote!
