    Business groups stand by Boehner, plot against tea party - The Washington Post

    Rather than revisit their strategy of supporting Republicans after this week’s near-disaster, influential organizations such as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce are standing behind Boehner. More importantly, Boehner’s friends in the business community are getting ready to take sides in a few Republican primary races against tea party candidates in Michigan, Idaho and Alabama who could cause the House speaker more trouble.

    “I don’t know of anybody in the business community who takes the side of the Taliban minority,” said Dirk Van Dongen, longtime chief lobbyist for the National Association of Wholesaler-Distributors who has known Boehner since the lawmaker’s first election.

    Hilarious. The Tea Party is the Republican Party. Haven't they figured that out?

    You know. Voter suppression. Anti civil rights. Damaging the country. Forced religion. Things Republicans are most proud of.
