    GOP & US Chamber of Commerce Threaten The USA

    Who is buying our nation? Who is threatening the US system? The Chamber support shipping US jobs overseas?

    The United States Chamber of Commerce — one of the biggest advertisers in midterm races around the country — is actively soliciting foreign money, and government enforcers seem to be doing nothing to stop it.

    Ruppert Murdoch is outraged. Because it was supposed to be a secret.

    He said he never intended for his gift to the Chamber of Commerce to become public

    Maybe if leftist wackaloons like you would quit trying to tax and regulate businesses out of business, they'd have more incentive to stay in America.

    Just sayin'.

    Didn't you mean to say: "Maybe if leftist wackaloons like you would work for Chinese wages, they'd have more incentive to stay in America"?

    While a day late, Dante doesn't disappoint in liberal talking points:

    More total bullshit economic ignorance.

    There are numerous reasons for offshoring operations, that have little to do with wages....Excessive employee turnover, like in the field of software troubleshooting phone banks, for one example.

    You populists really need a new set of yammering points.

    talking points? I was on this yesterday, but I did not post it. too busy. sorry :doubt:

    money is fungible. that is an issue. Did Murdoch and others give for the political campaigns? Trying to mask what the Chamber does by dragging the Unions into this is too pathetic. It's not a defense, it's a red herring.
