U.S.€™ Chamber Of Commerce Is Fueled By Foreign Oil

The oil-fueled Chamber has hammered candidates who voted to limit our dependence on oil, falsely claiming they supported a “job-killing energy tax” (like Rep. Paul Hodes (D-NH), Rep Joe Sestak (D-PA), Rep. Betsy Markey (D-CO), Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL), and Rep. Harry Teague (D-NM)).

Well, you so-called "progressives" have been unable to show that due payments seep into the political fund; which they don't. But even assuming they do, and assuming that all those contributions from "them damn Ferigners" go into the political fund; we're talking about a fraction of 1 percentage point of the $75 million you cite.

Why are you "progressives" being so damn Xenophobic and out-right racist in your hatred of Foreigners?
