Tom Donahue of the US Chamber of Commerce can take credit for the GOP's capture of House of Representatives in 2010. Donahue and others in the business community raised hundreds of millions of dollars in 2010 and 2012 to elect and re-elect a Republican House of Representatives. But now the US Chamber of Commerce and 250 business groups are expressing buyers remorse, as the radical GOP threatens a series of business and financial crises.
Stunningly, 250 business groups sent a letter to House members supporting a clean continuing resolution and raising the debt ceiling to insure that the full faith and credit of the USA is protected.
Good luck to the business patrons of the radical GOP. But Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, and the entire House GOP have slipped the business leash and are now biting the hand that fed them. At this point, the US Chamber of Commerce and its allies must deal with a Frankenstein Congressional monster that they birthed and raised.
Be careful for what you wish because you just might get it.
