Big Business: “We’re Paying Our Prostitutes MILLIONS of Dollars, and They’re NOT performing!!!”
Corporate conglomerates and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce spent megabazillions of dollars to “elect” their Republican prostitutes to the House of Representatives. And now they’re suffering from buyer’s remorse.
For one thing, they’ve suddenly noticed a huge gap between corporate interests and the Tea Party. What about that famous Republican lockstep march, where the entire party does everything in unison?
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is strongly in favor of a transportation bill which is crucial for the construction industry. Teabaggers keep derailing the bill.
And the U.S. Export-Import Bank, which has been financing exports since the 1930s, is in jeopardy. The bank might shut down completely by the end of May. (See Teabaggers, previous paragraph.)
A vice president of an airplane manufacturing firm said:
“There’s not a bank in the United States that’s going to loan money to that customer of mine in Argentina to buy my airplane. There is not a free-market system that operates like that. It does not exist. We need the Ex-Im Bank, period.”
The National Association of Manufacturers is also adamant about the importance of the U.S. Export-Import Bank.
Teabaggers are also derailing a lot of routine business tax breaks by insisting that these tax breaks have to be paid for by spending cuts elsewhere.
Whatever these teatards think of Corporate America, that’s who bought them their seats in Congress. Wasn’t there something about “dance with them that brung you,” or whatever it was Molly Ivins used to say.
A spokesman for Club For Growth said: “Free market is not always the same as pro-business.”
Let the rift begin. Let it get wider and wider. It’s time for these lockstep marchers to break ranks and start scattering every which way.
