Yesterday we shared the story of the CoC announcing their intention to spend $50 million in order to protect and maintain establishment Republicans. Yesterday the SCF (Senate Conservatives Fund) also sent out a distribution letter notifying supporters of the same issue.
However, the SCF misses the point when they note:
“The Chamber is pro-bailout, pro-stimulus, and pro-debt so it’s no surprise they want to elect more liberal Republicans.”
The reason the Chamber of Commerce is willing to spend so much money to protect the Mitch McConnells of the world was openly discussed a few weeks ago when the Chamber President appeared on Neil Cavuto.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is heavily invested in two legislative constructs. First, immigration reform. Second, maintaining Obamacare.
John Boehner has promised to deliver immigration reform next year. Nancy Pelosi openly admitted as such and it is widely expected to be the platform for President Obama’s entire State of The Union speech.
Bottom line – Establishment Republicans are going to deliver Amnesty legislation on behalf of the CoC request.
Regarding ObamaCare, the CoC is fully supporting Nationalized Healthcare initiatives because the Chamber see’s ObamaCare as the removal of a benefit liability from their membership.
Just about every large corporation has plans to drop their employer provided healthcare programs in favor of paying a known fixed penalty and putting their employees onto ObamaCare exchanges. They are not only anticipating doing this, it is already factored into the five and ten year projections and operations strategies of almost every Fortune 500 company.
The Chamber of Commerce does not want to see ObamaCare repealed or deconstructed, nor do they want to see immigration reform (ie. Amnesty) scrapped.
Both federal programs are baked into the CoC goals.
That is why the CoC will attack any candidate who challenges their bought and paid for Republicans.
The wife of the new National Republican Senatorial Committee head, Josh Holmes, is Blair Latoff (aka: Mrs. Josh Holmes). Blair Latoff, is the senior director of communications at the United States Chamber of Commerce in Washington.
Who is Blair Latoff’s husband, National Republican Senatorial Campaign head, Josh Holmes? Why he’s the former Chief of Staff for Mitch McConnell.
