    great question Gatorbill!!!!!!

    since budget legislation originates in the House of Representatives---the fault lies there. In that party majority of House(GOP) chooses to not present a budget that enough congressmen then senators can agree upon.

    At least that is how U.S. Chamber of C0ommerce sees it.

    Come on Gatorbill, how many threads on same topic are you going to post? Evidently you consider yourself exempt from not posting the same thread topic over and over again. Talk about entitled attitude

    It's a clusterF*&%k of regulations custom fit for, and imported from, Massachusetts, that figures on tying up the health insurance industry in knots, stalls future growth of the insurance companies, compels involuntary participation, forbids exclusion of pre-exisitng conditions--without providing for the financing of such, thereby rendering the policies simply unaffordable (though it pretended to yield affordable coverage), exempting the greatest hope of making it profitable (America's biggest businesses) through 2014...and apparently making it 'affordable' by taking many of the ppl. who had insurance in the private sector, and and diverting them to Medicaid, and other public programs, and finally, apparently specifically intended to shut down the private sector's involvement in health insurance in the long term (if it lasts that long--call me an optimist, but I believe it will be repealed by 2017--not earlier, simply because Barry would veto any repeal bill that made it to his desk). :joecool:

    @ OP:

    Correct. The GOP has had to forgo its traditional allegiance to business, in favor of protecting the core foundational values of this country, and 'the people'--who have not only been abandoned by the Dummy-rats, but have actually been attacked by the dummy rats and their policies.

    Glad to see you acknowledge that your beloved party has forsaken the little man, for big business. :joecool:

    Good article and I imagine the Dems will be taking advantage of this politically

    "We are not the party that throws tantrums and takes the economy hostage"

    Business votes with their wallet and are not attached to one party

    I thought liberals didn't like big business and the chamber of commerce---now they are criticizing republicans for hurting big business. What gives?

    ^^^they seem to be proud that their party sold out to big business.

    Just a few years ago, they decried such as 'crony capitalism.'

    But apparently that just applies when it's the other guy. ;)

    So I'd the GOP stops being the party of business when the chamber disagrees on an issue, what does 5 years of unrelenting demonization and vilification of the chamber by the DNC say about their relationship with business?

    Theirs a difference between hurting business out of spite, and business wanting to pay next to nothing in taxes, or not wanting to adhere to environmental standards.

    This might be the dumbest thread of the month. Chamber of Commerce LOVES BIG GOVERNMENT. They are dominated by fat white liberal lawyers and bankers. Been that way for a LONG time.

    You're delusional about this.

    They were huge Romney and GOP supporters last year.

    Which is nothing but a standard reply for anything you don't agree with. It grew old a long time ago.

    ACA is loved by those big boys who are cutting empoyee hours and cutting labor and insurance costs to improve their bottom line. Dropping labor cost through ACA is akin to having illegals as cheap labor for big corporatism... Conversely who is taking it in the shorts? Not big boy corporatism! The idiot minions who clamour are getting an unexpected result.:zombie:

    Ok, so going forward nobody can claim on this board that Pubs are "just the party of big business". Good, this shutdown has paid some dividends.
