    Default Chamber of Commerce running from stench of GOP, big time

    Chamber wants to disentangle its brand from the GOP


    Source: Washington Post

    THE BIG IDEA: The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, navigating dramatic cultural change thatís transforming the worlds of politics and business, plans to become less aligned with the Republican Party than it has been for decades.

    The largest and most powerful corporate lobbying group in Washington is changing the way it evaluates lawmakers for the first time in 40 years, launching a $250 million capital campaign to remodel its headquarters and even rethinking its approach to regulation.

    Several dues-paying companies have balked as the Chamber endorsed fewer and fewer Democrats over the past several election cycles. The GOPís drift toward protectionism, nativism and isolationism since Donald Trump took over the party in 2016 is also at odds with the Chamberís longtime support for expanding free trade, growing legal immigration and investing in infrastructure.

    This like the GOP Senators who express dismay ever time Trump does something asinine, which is often, and when the chips fall, they support Trump

    Just attempting to portray that they are playing it both ways to cover their bases, if Trump looks good going into the election, they'll jump on his bandwagon quicker than a hot knife thru butter

    It's inevitable Trump takes down the entire GOP as the entire GOP blindly follows him over a cliff

    many of us predicted it 2 yrs ago, fuckin idiots

    So we don't need to go out an vote in 2020? The Party of the Jackass is a shoo-in?

    So the GOP is done; no need for elections in 2020. It is a slam dunk for whoever the Party of the Jackass puts up?
