MM: Don’t Be So Quick to Give to the Chamber of Commerce

Posted on October 16, 2010


Michelle Malkin points out that just because Obama is going to war with the Chamber does not necessarily mean we should think of them as a small government group.

The Chamber supported TARP, the auto bailout, and the stimulus.

The Chamber is supporting a pro-Obamacare, pro-TARP, pro-card check, pro-stimulus, pro-amnesty Democrat in Arizona over his free-market GOP challenger.

Malkin makes a great point about the Chamber, and I would expand on that point to mention that much of the force pushing for bigger government today comes from big business. Big companies want the government to run your health care so they don’t have to worry about. They want the government to run your retirement so they don’t have to worry about it. They want the government to spend trillions in “stimulus” money because it’s the big companies, not the small and mid-sized businesses, that will be on the receiving end of the hand outs.
