U.S. Chamber Watch 2010 Electoral Scorecard

During the 2010 election cycle, the U.S. Chamber promised to spend up to $75 million in anonymous corporate cash to "change the composition" of Congress. More than 90% of the Chamber's disclosed electoral spending went to Republicans.  While the Chamber gave millions more to down ballot races (some reported, some unreported), see how they fared in the Congressional races by viewing our U.S. Chamber Watch 2010 Electoral scorecard available here.

Whose opportunity does U.S. Chamber of Commerce President Tom Donohue talk about when he talks about opportunity?

The Chamber’s policies might give the largest corporations the opportunity to grow, but that is often not the same thing as growth and opportunity for the American people. After-tax corporate profits in the third quarter topped 11 percent of GDP for the first time since the records started in 1947. But everyday Americans aren’t doing so well, with real median household income declining 4.4 percent since 2009.

When the Chamber opposes increasing minimum wages to coincide with growth in productivity and the economy overall, one must ask whose growth and opportunity the Chamber is pushing for.
