U.S. Chamber of Commerce endorses Republican Mehmet Oz in Senate race

Source: Reuters

WASHINGTON, Sept 28 (Reuters) - The U.S. Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday endorsed Republican celebrity physician Mehmet Oz in a high-stakes race for a U.S. Senate seat in Pennsylvania, lauding what it called his "commitment to free enterprise and pro-growth policies."

Oz, backed by former President Donald Trump, is running against John Fetterman, the state's Democratic lieutenant governor, in a closely watched race that will help determine whether President Joe Biden's Democrats hold onto their razor-thin margin in the U.S. Senate.

Both Biden and Trump have traveled to the state in recent weeks to promote their parties' candidates.

The Chamber, the largest lobbying group in the United States, said it was endorsing Oz as a "pro-business" candidate whose views stood in "stark contrast" to those of Fetterman.

Wish Democrats would learn to take their business elsewhere. But often there is no choice.

13. Yes, the Chamber of Commerce stands for rapacious capitalism that hurts everyone but the top

executives and shareholders of a company. Their motto should be caveat emptor because they support laws that give corporations all the rights and consumers none.

20. U.S. Chamber of Commerce is Pro Business, not Pro-People. What's good for people is good for

business, but what's good for business isn't always so great for people.

28. Pa. is a leader in giving out corporate welfare.

However we lag the nation in job creation.
Our state's republican congress and former governor gave us the highest fuel tax in the nation. But remember repukes never raise taxes???
They also gave us the most expensive toll road in the World. The Pa Turnpike. It is also 13 billion in debt. But repukes fix everything without raising taxes!

29. Typical of the conservative short-sighted group

Without the freedom to choose, the rights to privacy soon to be repealed and a free/fair election process there will be no booming American economy. Electing Republicans will only accelerate American decline into chaos, which is never good for business. Besides, Democrats are always better for the economy. But, the media doesn't want us to know that.
