Is the Chamber of Commerce like FOX?

The Chamber of Commerce appears to be like FOX following the ideology of the Right.

 

Politico reports that “The White House and congressional Democrats are working to marginalize the Chamber of Commerce — the powerful business lobby opposed to many of President Barack Obama’s first-year priorities — by going around the group and dealing directly with the CEOs of major U.S. corporations.”

 

“Democrats in Congress have been angered by the Chamber’s attacks on the House climate change bill and its staunch opposition to the creation of a consumer financial protection agency, a centerpiece of the administration’s financial regulatory reform efforts.”

 

“There’s a strong, very conservative ideology there,” said House Financial Services Committee Chairman Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.). “They’re more like The Heritage Foundation then they are like an economic association.”

 

It appears that the Chamber of Commerce has made itself dispensable and that is a good thing considering the positions they have taken lately.
