Dems are now in panic mode after what the U.S. Chamber of Commerce just said. This is what we call Karma is a bitch… And Dems just nailed the BIG KARMA.
On Wednesday, The U.S. Chamber of Commerce launched a six-figure ad campaign pressuring moderate House Democrats to vote down the $3.5 trillion reconciliation package.
The ads target Rep. Axne (D-IA), Rep. Angie Craig (D-MN), Rep. Antonio Delgado (D-NY), Rep. Josh Harder (D-CA), and Rep. Elaine Luria (D-VA). , urging them to reject Democrats’ party-line spending plan over its proposed tax hikes.
In a previous report made by The Daily Wire, it says that Universal pre-kindergarten, free community college, a paid family and medical leave benefit, and additional Medicare benefits would all be included in the legislation.
Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Suzanne Clark called the social welfare bill “an existential threat to America’s fragile economic recovery and future prosperity.”
“We will not find durable or practical solutions in one massive bill that is equivalent to more than twice the combined budgets of all 50 states.” She said.
”The success of the bipartisan infrastructure negotiations provides a much better model for how Congress should proceed in addressing America’s problems,” She added.
From The Wall Street Journal:
The Chamber of Commerce — one of the most powerful lobbying forces in Washington — faced pressure last year due to its endorsement of twenty-three Democratic freshman candidates for the House of Representatives. The move was criticized by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA).
“In challenging times, we are reminded of the importance of having leaders who understand the genius of the American system of government and free enterprise and who are willing to tackle the hard problems that confront our nation. Your continued leadership in Congress will benefit the nation as we combat the coronavirus, work to restore economic growth, and expand opportunities for all Americans,” The Chamber of Commerce’s endorsement of Craig said.
A press release from Harder’s office states that the lawmaker was awarded the “Abraham Lincoln Leadership for America Award” by the Chamber “for his support of policies that protect America’s free enterprise economy.” The Chamber also granted Axne the “Spirit of Enterprise” award in 2020 due to her “voting record in the first half of the 116th Congress.”
