Can't this guy do anything right?

It's like we discussed yesterday. It's not over until the stock market sings.

What do you expect from an Atheist Muslin, Iron-Fisted Empty Suit, Amateur Career Politician, Warmongering Appeaser like that??

When Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., was asked if he had heard business groups express fears of a government shutdown's economic impact, he replied: "No. And it wouldn't make any difference if I did."

of course it wouldn't make a difference. all of this is just about spite.

What. The. Flying. Fark.

Seriously, you were elected to represent your constituents.  If your business-owning constituents, the ones who are probably the only people that might possibly be "hurt" by PPACA, comes to you and say "yeah, not being a dick to my employees is probably less of a pain than risking a global economic crisis again," you're not going to listen to them?

This is getting completely and totally out of hand.

Republicans have lost the support of big business?

That sound you just heard was the sound of every non-Teabagger Republican in Congress pissing themselves.

What big businesses aren't already giving their employees health care?

There is an element of the Right that believes that the Democrats are quite comfortable with big business.
 
2013-10-03 08:01:09 AM  
Well, that'll put a dent in Republican fundraising.

Have the Chamber of Commerce call a press conference. Have them show up with a giant novelty cheque made out to the DNC, in the amount of $25,000,000, sans signature, and YOUR MOVE, BOEHNER in the memo line. Clean CR and debt ceiling hike by noon.

You're welcome, America.

I hope every business leader in his district gets this quote and understand that it means he will only work for the people and businesses in his district if it suits his desires.

People like him are way on their way of turning politics into Tea Party & Big Money donors VS the rest of the Country.

dinch: What big businesses aren't already giving their employees health care?


Something like 94% of all businesses with 50+ full-time employees already do.  So, probably none.

Sooo, perhaps there is a potential downside to all the calls to minimize the influence of business in politics?

Granting they - like anyone else - are going to attempt to game the system to their benefit, but I'm not seeing the current rise of the ideological fanatics to be superior

LordJiro: Republicans have lost the support of big business?

No, that was the sound of the senior republican's and most of the party leadership (With the exception of Boehner who isn't a leader of anything.) collectively shiatting a massive brick.  This goes way, way beyond bad for them. This is the Endgame and they know it.

Whats even better is there's almost nothing they can do about it unless they basically hand everything over to the Dems.

Does the P in GOP stand for Poison? Because they seem to kill everything they touch.

LMAO - the article suggests Obama has the full support of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce ... and when you go to their website, the front page is a slideshow of the many different ways "Obamacare" (not the ACA) sucks.

The Apples and Exxons with mostly college educated employees may cover everyone but the Walmarts of the world with tons of low income employees don't necessarily.

There is an element of the Right that believes that Jesus Christ handed the Constitution directly down to us from a flying saucer. One comes to expect such things.
The belief you mention, while exaggerated, is based on fact, and relatively rational for a "conservative" belief. Big business does have far too much influence on Democrats.

As Oct 17 gets closer and no deal in the works, phone calls are going to be made with the threat of pull reelection dollars.

Wishing doesn't make things so. Talking "as if" things are going your way - well, y'all tried that in 2012 - how'd that work out for you? Now, you're doing the denial routine again, instead of facing up to reality - and there goes any chance of prevailing you ever had.
What very few conservatives and Republicans left with any brains had better get serious and grab the wheel away from the loons pretty quick - your whole bus is about to crash.

I think it'll be a toss-up; there will be people who may prefer that regulatory agencies remain shut down.

It looks like it is getting even worse for them: Contractors juggle millions of dollars in shutdown losses

That's their bread and butter.

But they seem to ignore how comfortable many Republicans are with big business.

You, speaking as somebody who has historically voted Republican in every election since I could vote, this is big. I dealt with being "trickled-down" upon, because I had some how, however slim" of actually ascending the ladder someday. Then, I saw how living conditions actually improved under Clinton, and how the GOP was so desperate to lay him low, they actually had to make a political shiatstorm out of a blowjob. Then, I had to endure Bush militarizing every Barney Fife in the country. Now, the GOP has been hijacked by hypocritical idiots. No wonder so much of the country doesn't even bother to vote.

You know. If the Tea Party weren't bent on tearing apart our actual government, I would give them props for dismissing corporate interests* and going full-steam ahead with their principles. Too bad their principles are "keep your government out of my medicare".

This will be the message:  The government shutdown is to stop Obamacare.  If there were no Obamacare then there would be no shutdown.  The damage to your businesss due to the shutdown is a direct result of Obamacare.

Teahadists are so stupid they say they're pro-business but they don't even know what that means. To them, it's just a talking point.
