Bring back American jobs.
Business vs. The American People. These executives care more for money than liberty. They don’t understand that without liberty one can not have prosperity.
Total NY Slimes Marxist propaganda! The tea party is all about free enterprise!!
Go, tea party!! We’ve got the hun on the run!!
What will the meme of the democrats and the MSM be when the only represents taxpayers?
Btw depending upon Boehner's conduct during this shutdown I suspect taxpayers aren't even a sure thing.
Oopsy, did the NYT commit journalism here? I thought they've been telling us the TEA Party is dead, or at least on life support.
The Times have also been saying that so often that even "influential RINOs" believe(d) it.
Is that why they're heading into flay themselves in front of Obama to prove their worthiness to be in Congress?
A lot of these business groups use both parties to carve out anti-competitive legislation. Most of these are barriers against small businesses to prevent a breakout into the larger market. That is why so many laws are predicated on the number of employees a business has. The cost of jumping that barrier is extremely high and often prohibitive to smaller businesses.
Tea Party Loosens K Street’s Stranglehold on GOP (they should say Congress)
Its OK, they’ve still got the democrats.
“Occupy Wall Street” has no seats?
No, but the Communist Party has about 120.
The Pub party will become a minority party if they abandon the middle class, main street Pubs, who are the bulk of the Tea Party. The idea that everything will "settle down" and the base will still vote for the Pubs if we cut a deal that's good for our business interests is not going to work.
The Tea Party was born out of opposition to obamacare. The destruction of individual liberty and tax burdens created by this law will never be acceptable. The Tea Party has been under attack almost from the get go. The Rats refused tax exempt status to Tea Party organizations. The Rats had the IRS audit large contributors. The mainstream media has denigrated the Tea Party organization and members. The Pubs have only reluctantly given them a voice, but not positions of power within the party. Yet the Tea Party is still here!
If the Pubs abandon us in this fight. I know I will respond by only contributing to Tea Party candidates who are running against establishment Pubs in the primaries. If the Tea Party candidate gets the nomination then I will contribute to them in the general election and vote for them if possible. If the Tea Party candidate is not a ballot I won't be voting.
Enough is enough. I'm embarrassed to say I did vote for McCain, Romney and other establishment Pubs. I knew they weren't what I wanted, but I figured the alternative was worse. I don't care anymore.
We are looking at ways to counter the rise of an ideological brand of conservatism that, for lack of a better word, is more anti-establishment than it has been in the past, said David French, the top lobbyist at the National Retail Federation. We have come to the conclusion that sitting on the sidelines is not good enough.
Sitting on the sidelines? Hey, Frenchie—is it not true that your Big Business masters have spent years and tens of millions of dollars in buying off establishment Republicans to vote for amnesty and crony capitalism?
There are some of us who no longer buy the line that “what is good for General Motors (or Google, FaceBook, Microsoft, etc.) is necessarily good for America.”
Well, that's definitely good news. Republicans need to take closer looks at the long term effects of almost always doing the bidding of business interests. Business interests will, and have, flooded this country with illegal aliens, enticed here with the lure of jobs and little or no law enforcement.
If businessmen think, as in the past, that their interests are best represented by Republicans, then maybe they need start thinking beyond their next payroll to what impact their use of illegal alien labor and support of higher and higher legal immigration is having on the voter pool in the US. They are, along with several well know RINOS, guaranteeing that the Republican party will beocme a long term minority party by continually supporting virtually open borders simply to put short-term, downward pressure on labor costs.
I don't think most businessmen will be too pleased to wake up some day and realize the US government is in firm control of extreme leftists. But that's the precise result they are making major contributions toward.
False premise. There ain't no debt default. There is a leadership default in the White Hut.
this must explain why Warren Buffet appeared like a delusional old man who has outstayed his welcome.
Investing conservativly is not inteligence.
The media is becoming shrill.
MSNBC even dug up michael eisner to push the democrat line. (he should just stay in the closet)
I call BS on the association threats.
These are “I got mine” liberals and RINOs.
In that these “business groups” tend to be leftist-liberal, and internationalist instead of American nationalist, the Republicans need to divorce themselves from them.
They may be “business groups”, but they are “progressive” ones who are to a great extent responsible for the deplorable state our government finds itself in today.
The rank and file Republicans now realize that these “business groups” are just another wing of the Democrat party, or at least, its agenda.
This is a good thing.
They’ve been tossing our liberty under the bus in exchange for Crony Capitalist cash for far too long now.
Elitists See Loss of Sway Over Populists
Nice try, NYT.
Not buying it.
Shove it up your smelly collective Obamaholes.
