Here’s the New York Times today on business leaders who bought the government but aren’t seeing it do its bidding:
“There clearly are people in the Republican Party at the moment for whom the business community and the interests of the business community — the jobs and members they represent — don’t seem to be their top priority,” said Dan Danner, the head of the National Federation of Independent Businesses
Apparently, they did not buy enough of the government:
“We are looking at ways to counter the rise of an ideological brand of conservatism that, for lack of a better word, is more anti-establishment than it has been in the past,” said David French, the top lobbyist at the National Retail Federation. “We have come to the conclusion that sitting on the sidelines is not good enough.”
Please take a moment to appreciate the implicit political correctness of buying the government and that government’s top priority is big business.
Nothing to see here. Move along.
