Who Hijacked Our Country

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.

Reading between the lines you have business admitting this really ISN'T a free market system and that they depend on Government Money as much as anyone else, in spite of what the conservative pundits keep telling us.

To hell with all of those self-centered, greedy, anti-worker bastards! I am overjoyed that their latest attempt to buy government is failing.

This is what happens when you bet the farm on morons. The Klanservative Klanbagging Kochsuckers have only racism as the glue that binds them, and they are going to be against ANYTHING that the damned n____r proposes. Period. Too f'ing bad for the dumbasses who threw their lot in with them.

Ah, sweet schadenfreude! You pay big bucks to get crazy, extremist liars elected, and you end up getting burned because they're extremists, liars and crazy.

Justice deserved and justice done.

BTW, in case any bidness types read this: Look at the record and you'll see you consistently do better over time with Democrats controlling the White House and Congress.

Tom, this is a very good and revealing post. It's a shame this information won't be shared enough (let alone often enough) before election time.

Also, what SW said.

I agree with Jack and JJ. Fuck em. The business leaders of our country are failing us now as badly as the pulpit failed us during the civil rights movement.

Erik: That's right, CEOs are begging for government handouts just as surely as those mythical welfare Cadillac owners.

Jack: I agree, hell with them all.

jadedj: Yup, fuck 'em all.

JR: They bet the farm and lost. Serves them right.

SW: Ja, schadenfreude!

Snave: Thanks. I'm glad to see these different GOP factions fighting each other instead of marching in lockstep.

Mr. C: Our business "leaders" are failing us, and they in turn are getting failed by the teatards. Justice all around.

Tom, Tom, Tom,


But we knew those little chicks would come home to roost, didn't we?

And they are pretty much chickens.

Brave chickens for a while.

But chickens (lying chickens) never the less.

Love ya,
