The LA Times
has a story about how business lobbyists haven't been as devastated by Democratic actions as they anticipated. It turns out, Democrats aren't all that anti-business, despite allegations to the contrary from Republicans.
I have to ask, is this a good thing?
I would say it could be good because it's proof our candidates aren't the anti-business commies the Republicans make them out to be.
I would say it's bad, because unless we have some truly anti-business Dems repealing oil subsidies all the way, and putting the fear of god into military contractors, big agra, oil companies and other industries that have demonstrated a lack of regard for, well, human life, the corporations are not going to change their act.
Right now I feel their response has been balanced, and you can't expect them to lead some revolution like Hugo Chavez to nationalize the oil industry. But at the same time, I'd like to see them put a bit of a hurting on these corporations that have benefitted so much from Republicans at a cost to the American people.
