Thom Hartmann: Chamber of Commerce investing in Republican politicians

Thom plus logo
Our democracy is screwed. The largest corporate lobbying organization in the nation - the Chamber of Commerce - is ramping up its election spending - targeting two Democrats - including progressive Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown - with millions of dollars in negative ads.
This is just a sign of things to come as the Chamber plans to spend $50 million this election year to defeat Democrats in at least a dozen Senate seats and more than 30 House seats.
Despite Republicans giving the nation a case of voter's remorse after just two years in power in the House - the oligarchs want to make sure their lapdogs survive the next vote. Consider the Chamber's contributions as investments to keep taxpayer oil subsidies and tax cuts for banksters in place.
(Will they achieve their goal? Tell us here.)
