All those angry voters in the country who are worried about foreign and multi-national corporations influencing our government and the shipping of American jobs overseas will probably end up voting the way those foreign corporations want them to vote.
A new report shows that donations from foreign corporations are being funneled into this year’s Congressional campaign advertising all through one organization’s $75 million political effort—the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
Corporations in China, India, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Brazil, Russia and other countries are all trying to buy the most foreign-friendly Congress they can get. And the U.S. Chamber wants to deliver with a political advertising campaign that dwarfs the efforts of any other special interest group.
What are just some of the goals of foreign corporations?
Defeating Congressional efforts to discourage out sourcing of jobs to other countries.
Defeating Congressional efforts to put any controls on foreign oil companies.
Defeating Congressional efforts to reign in free trade policies.
Defeating Congressional efforts to stop foreign tax haven abuse that costs taxpayers over $30 billion a year.
Defeating Congressional efforts to promote the purchasing of American manufactured goods.
The U.S. Chamber has adopted all the goals of their foreign contributors, all of which will hurt American small businesses. Yet the U.S. Chamber still tries to convince the public that they only want what is best for our country. The reality is that the U.S. Chamber only wants two things—power and money. And the latter gives them the former.
Is this foreign money in our Congressional races illegal? Yes it is.
The Department of Justice has been asked to investigate. But with only four weeks until the elections don’t look for anything to stop the U.S. Chamber‘s un-American campaign.
