So this is what’s become of our democracy.
It’s unacceptable and everyone, independents, progressives, and liberals need to push the Obama administration to do more to stop this outrageous takeover of our government by what is essentially a “foreign agent” in the guise of The United States Chamber of Commerce. They do not have the interest of this country at heart.
Their business is to insure foreign monies sent to the Chamber of Commerce produce more outsourcing, which will not be done under a democrat majority in the house and senate.
Ratcheting up the debate over the influence of outside groups in congressional elections, the Democratic National Committee has made a major ad purchase pushing the case that the November elections could very well be “stolen” by foreign influences.
The committee is airing a spot on national cable this coming week that turns an already harsh spotlight on the roles being played by former Bush strategists Karl Rove and Ed Gillespie in addition to the Chamber of Commerce. Pivoting off reports that the business lobby has used foreign donations for its campaign activities, the spot ends with fairly conspicuous if not ominous shot of Chinese currency being stacked up — ostensibly for use against Democratic candidates.
“Karl Rove, Ed Gillespie: They’re Bush cronies. The US Chamber of Commerce: They’re shills for big business,” the ad goes. “And they’re stealing our democracy. Spending Millions from secret donors to elect Republicans to do their bidding in Congress. It appears they’re even taking secret foreign money to influence our elections. It’s incredible, Republicans benefiting from secret foreign money. Tell the Bush Crowd and the Chamber of Commerce – stop stealing our democracy.”
