Dialing For Dollars: Why House Republicans Do What They Do For Business (And To Us)

This sop to business may die in the Senate, or be vetoed by President Barack Obama, but the Tea Party-driven Republican House of Representatives did approve a bill last week that clamps down on the EPA.

One amendment to protect the Great Lakes was defeated, with all House Republicans voting against the amendment, according to the author, a Minnesota Democrat.

Which brings us again to Paul Ryan, House Budget Committee Chair and newly-designated national Republican Party fundraiser, and if you don't see the connection between that appointment and the GOP's legislative and regulatory catering to big business, you are not paying attention.
