The Last Refuge is right on the money on why the Chamber of Commerce is fighting the Tea Party. American Big Business wants amnesty and Obamacare.
Big Business loves the idea of amnesty for illegal immigrants. Many big businesses use illegal immigrant labor (mostly through contracting with smaller contractors). By increasing passing amnesty legislation, labor costs will plummet. This is not good for workers.
Big business also likes Obamacare. The insurance companies and pharmaceutical companies love it: after all, they wrote the legislation. The rest of Big Business loves being able to stop providing health insurance to their employees. Health insurance keep going up and Big Business can’t control these costs.
Americans must stop both of these initiatives.
