    GovTrack: House Vote On Passage: H.R. 2378 [111th]: Currency Reform for Fair Trade Act

    The final step was last month when Congress passed H.R. 2378: Currency Reform for Fair Trade Act that outlines specific penalties for countries who manipulate their currency.

    The Chinese poured a lot of money into lobbyists to try and stop this from happening. In fact, nearly half of all republicans in the House voted against this bill.

    One of the biggest lobbyist groups who took Chinese and India money to try and defeat this bill is the United States Chamber of Commerce.

    The largest attack campaign against Democrats this fall is being waged by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, a trade association organized as a 501(c)(6) that can raise and spend unlimited funds without ever disclosing any of its donors... The Chamber’s spending has dwarfed every other issue group and most political party candidate committee spending.

    Smart Sourcing has partnered with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce to sponsor the China Grassroots Program for 2008-2009. The program consists of a series of forums throughout North America promoting bilateral trade and business opportunities for small and medium size firms in the China market. Upcoming forums will be announced and for more information visit:

    For some reason, the link to the U.S. Chamber website is dead.

    To be fair, the Chamber has supported some Democrats, as long as they vote Republican:

    The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which has been a powerful ally for Republican candidates in this year's midterm campaigns, quietly moved across the aisle this week and bought ads touting nearly a dozen Democratic House members.

    The "voter education" spots are running on behalf of 10 members of the fiscally conservative Blue Dog Coalition, many of them in the South, including Georgia's Jim Marshall, Virginia's Glenn Nye, Maryland's Frank Kratovil, Mississippi's Travis W. Childers and Alabama's Bobby Bright.

    Though the Chamber is officially bipartisan, it has had a strong pro-Republican bent in the last decade under the leadership of President Tom Donohue. In 2008, the organization's political action committee directed at least three-quarters of its spending to help the GOP.

    WASHINGTON -- The nation's largest business lobby, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, has raised ire among Democratic leaders for pouring millions of dollars into an advertising push to prevent the party from winning dominance in the Senate next year.

    The Chamber says it has raised enough money this year from corporations to spend about $35 million on the election, double its budget for House and Senate races in the 2006 election. The group is supporting pro-business candidates, almost exclusively Republicans in contested Senate races.

    Communist China sends a special thanks to US Republicans and their sponsors, the US Chamber of Commerce, mostly funded by China.

    One thread that causes Republicans to run away, hands flapping, arms fully extended, screaming, "NO, NO, NO!"

    Are you channeling Glenn Beck? Do you have a blackboard where you plot out all these conspiracies by listing completely unrelated facts?

    It's Easter, everyone is with their families. Don't be a phaggot.
    This bill is from Sept 2010, BEFORE the Midterms when the Dems were in charge of the House. Additionally, this Bill died in the Senate so thank "Dingy" Harry Reid for not scheduling it for a vote moron. You're such a predictable partisan hack rdean.

    Here's a similar House Resolution that was introduced January 20th (That would be the current Congress):
    Bill Summary & Status - 112th Congress (2011 - 2012) - H.R.375 - All Information - THOMAS (Library of Congress)
    It still needs to get through two committees before it gets schedules for a vote so we'll see.

    By the way it took me like, 10 minutes to find this info.

    Too bad you didn't read who sponsored it. One fucking Republican was a "co-sponsor". Now this is hilarious. Walter Jones has a rating from Conservatives of 41 out of 100.

    Do you think this bill will pass? Republicans aren't going to stand for anything that helps this country. Seems you should have spent MORE than 10 measly minutes. Maybe that's the length of your limited attention span? I dunno?
