Thank God other chambers of commerce are recognizing and publicly saying what I’ve been talking about for years (here, here, here, here, ect.). The U.S. Chamber of Commerce does not represent the interests of small businesses.
These local chambers is Louisiana now know that when the interests of the U.S. Chamber’s big business members are in conflict with the interests of small businesses, it is the latter that the U.S. Chamber will throw under the bus. It’s all about money for the U.S. Chamber and the biggest contributors win its voice.
