Orgeon GOP openly admit they just work for corporations, not constituents

and actually whine when the corporations talk to the constituents:

Senate GOP leader: Timber deal with environmentalists demoralizing to caucus

A deal struck between timber companies and environmentalists with the help of Gov. Kate Brown made Republicans' jobs more difficult this session and demoralized the caucus, Senate Republican Leader Herman Baertschiger Jr. said Tuesday.

"These people come into our offices, ask us to do things for them and then turn around and throw us under the bus," Baertschiger said. "You kind of scratch your head and say: who are we fighting for?"

The Republican from Grants Pass said the deal — hailed as historic by Brown — makes the task of blocking a controversial greenhouse gas emissions cap-and-trade bill more difficult.
...
Baertschiger later had a meeting with timber industry leaders Greg Miller and Heath Curtiss and said he "expressed my frustration in their behavior."

What a snowflake! Who are you fighting for, Herman? I dunno, maybe you should look into being a proper politician and fighting for the people who elect you, not the ones who throw money at you.

1. Corporations are people, my friends

Most inadvertently honest and frightening thing a Republican’s admitted in years.

2. As an Oregonian, I'm loving it! The GOPee jammed the

State last year when they fled to deny quorum on climate change. Now they get punked by their own backers.

3. "Who are we fighting for?" That sums up the GOP pretty succinctly.
