Corporate Welfare vs. Taxpayers

The DC Examiner breaks down the difference between how some legislators are rated by taxpayer groups vs. how they are rated by the Chamber of Commerce. Illuminating.

Liberal Democrats often accuse conservative Republicans of being pawns for Big Business, but the 2008 scorecard for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce—the largest lobbying organization in the country and the official Washington voice of business—provides convincing evidence to the contrary. In fact, the policy agenda of big business can be very different from that of limited-government conservatives and libertarians.

Hat tip to Hit and Run.
