Most people think the U.S. Chamber of Commerce fights for all businesses and the taxpayers who work in them. They are wrong.
The National Federation for Independent Business(NFIB)at http://www.nfib.com/ is backing Don Stenberg for Nebraska Senator.
Crony capitalists at the U. S. Chamber of Commerce are working to defeat Don Stenberg. With just three weeks to go until Nebraska Republicans head to the polls, the Washington establishment has officially hit the panic button.
Free-market conservative Don Stenberg is gaining momentum in the race for U.S. Senate and the corporate welfare lobby doesn't like it. Last week, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce endorsed Stenberg's opponent in an effort to stop his surge.
As you may know, the Chamber supported the failed stimulus program, the Wall Street bailout, the auto bailout, cash-for-clunkers, as well as many other corporate welfare schemes. The Chamber doesn't oppose government intervention in the marketplace. Instead, it often works to expand it to benefit one special interest over another.
The corporate welfare lobby in Washington wants to defeat Don Stenberg because he isn't afraid to stand up to them.
According to Senator Jim DeMint, Chairman, Senate Conservatives Fund, “Nebraskans don’t want a Wall Street Senator who makes backroom deals with big government special interests," Stenberg said. "They want a street fighter, someone who will work tirelessly to shrink the size of government.”
"Freedom-loving Americans in Nebraska and across the nation want a principled fighter in the Senate, and we can have one if we act now."
"If you haven't supported this man, now is the time to do it. With only three weeks to impact this race, it's now or never. We can't let the establishment defeat this principled conservative and elect another posturing politician. We can win this race, but we must work together."
