It’s well-documented that the nation’s largest business lobby, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, has devised a political agenda that is totally anti-consumer and favors corporate wrongdoers. The group poured millions of dollars into advertising in the recent election cycle in an attempt to prevent the Democratic Party from winning dominance in the Senate. The Chamber – which developed into an anti-consumer outfit – raised enough money from large corporations to spend well over $35 million on the election. This was double the Chamber’s budget for House and Senate races in the 2006 election.
The politically-motivated group supported Republican pro-business candidates in all of the contested Senate races. The Chamber has become little more than an extension of the GOP. Fortunately for the American people its political efforts this year – in spite of all the spending – were a dismal failure. Many are now saying it’s time for local chambers of commerce – who claim not to be involved with the national group – to let the public know this sort of thing by the U.S. Chamber won’t be tolerated. I fully agree with that position.
