Huffington Post: Chamber's War On Obama Just Getting Started


November 4, 2010- President Barack Obama's apparent hopes to the contrary, the head of the nation's flagship business lobby has made it clear that the corporate campaign against the White House's agenda is far from over.

In a newly-published BusinessWeek cover story worth reading for the gloating alone, Devin Leonard reports that U.S. Chamber of Commerce President Tom Donohue is gearing up for more fights, and is more than willing to inject unprecedented amounts of Chamber money directly into electoral politics.

Donohue's priorities, as reported by Leonard, are unsurprising: tax cuts, deficit cuts, foreign trade pacts, and deregulation -- meaning he wants to tear down the health care and financial reform laws passed earlier this year.

So while The New York Times suggested Thursday that corporate America may be softening its view of the Obama administration, Donohue finds that idea hilarious, according to BusinessWeek. "Oh, hell no," he chuckles to Leonard, when asked if the battles between Obama and his organization have ended. "They are in the second inning."
