Evan Bayh joining U.S. Chamber of Commerce to weaken regulations on corporations… with BushCo’s Andy Card

Post by Guest on Wed Jun 08, 2011 1:06 am



Enjoy your paycheck while you help destroy what’s left of the good ol’ USA, Ev! Via Think Progress:

Bayh will be joining former Bush administration official Andy Card in a Chamber-led lobbying campaign designed to weaken regulations on corporations across the board, and make it more difficult to enact new regulations. The REINS Act, which Bayh will be helping to pass, will severely undercut (and effectively repeal) significant portions of the Americans with Disabilities Act, health and financial reform, the Clean Air Act and Clean Water Act, and the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act, among many other laws. [...]

During the period of 2009-2010, when Bayh was still in office, he appeared to be auditioning for a job in the private sector as a lobbyist [...]

One must wonder: when did Bayh begin negotiations with the Chamber for his current job as a lobbyist? Did the expectation that he would leave Congress and join the private sector as a lobbyist impact his votes and actions while in the Senate?

Once again, it’s all about money, profits over people. It just hurts even more to see a Democrat [sic] hook up with the likes of Card and the Chamber to betray his party and his country

And people are surprised that Democrats are slime too. The Dems were taken over by slime awhile back.

No, not surprised at all by that corporate-owned putz. But there still are Democrats with principles. The difference between Democrats and Republicans are that some of the former are whores, while all of the latter are. Until there is a viable third party, those are your choices. You can kvetch or you can work to get better Democrats.

True, but the good Dems are spineless and that's the problem.
