6. The US Chamber has no clue about business...

I'm beginning to realize that all they are is a big checkbook for Karl Rove and his pals. Some fat cats at the top are making the decisions, and wasting a lot of money.

If they were true business people, they'd look at the FACTS, and see that this President, like the last Democratic president, is GREAT for business. If they were truly interesting in helping America's businesses, they would focus on the assault on the middle class and the small businesses, since the 1980s.

Until someone addresses the fact that the top 1% is paying a fraction of the taxes they paid under Reagan, and as a result, the American spender (who drives the economy) will continue to decline. Add to that the jobs being shipped overseas, and Americans will never recover (well, the 99% of them, anyway.)

I cancelled my Chamber memberships, as I found even on the local level, to be ignorant and republican, and anti-small business. It's why I gave up real estate, too.
