War breaks out between Dems and U.S. Chamber

Democrats and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce have been at odds for years, but the battle has escalated to an all-out war. The Chamber is airing ads attacking vulnerable Democrats, labeling them as anti-business and, in the case of Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fl.), "big mouth politicians." Let us know which ad you think is the worst (or best, depending on your point of view) in the comments below.

Let's see: the crooked secret money from corporations and nazi-style rich is an investment.
Over many years of strategy, they packed the Supes so now money is speech, although it is silent.

So they're investing in gaining control of something worth owning. What is it? the money in Social SEcurity? the Highway system? they want to OWN something, what is it?
The land in the national Parks?

The American citizens, as serfs?

These guys think in terms of assets and investments in ownership.Their ads are designed to persuade you to give away something, and unfortunately you won't find out what they want until after the election.

Good luck to all of us. I think the slavers are on the march, but they may have over-reached themselves and might lose more than they've considered. Time will tell...

I think the anti-George Miller ad is grossly unfair. I saw Mono Lake after its water was send to local farmers. It took Billions and years to restore. Should we send water to farms without American farmers?
A recent survey found that the unemployed are NOT applying for farm jobs, so who is doing the farmer? I give you one, solo una, no mas.
Estimates of illegal workers are over 5 million, mostly in the housing construction industry and farming. Face it! American wages lead to farm products too expensive to sell, got it?
They want to buy water and sell it back to the state and make millions. Read up on the Fresno/Bakersfield scandal. The State of California sold water cheap and bought it back at a high price. Everyone got a cut, nobody complained. I think saving the smelt is better use for the water. Or, are you concerned about unemployment for illegals?
Are you a Tea Party member?

Those are some great videos. Good job COC!! No wonder the Democrats aren't happy. They have the unions and the hispanics so until you shut the whole thing down it's just tit for tat.

DrainYou, you have no idea what you are talking about. Put down the kool aid and get a life. Any sane person would rather have Koch's honest money than the foul funds that George Soros gives Obama. Obama and the dems also get stolen money from union bosses and big business and Wall St. The special interests democrats know no bounds. Fire them all!

The COC Missions statement states that their mission is to:

"To advance human progress through an economic, political and social system based on individual freedom, incentive, initiative, opportunity, and responsibility."


I am not sure how the COC believes in their own mission statement, while using hostile political campaign ads to attack Democratic political nominations.

For an organization as large and as well known as the COC, who claims to advance human progress through economic, political, social systems, based on individual freedoms, it sure does look and sound like the COC is trying to suppress and oppress those political freedoms.

What's odd is that their attack videos are only biased towards one political party in the country; therefore, all of the ads are terrible; especially coming from a Business organization representing the U.S., which at one time was well respected.

Thanks to the hideous Citizens United decision that the activist right wing Supreme Court justices passed recently, the Extremist Republican party already has the backing of foreign and domestic Mega Corporations and Big Oil cash laundered through the elitist right wing psychopaths at the Anti US Chamber of Commerce, and they also have the oil billionaire Koch brothers and their front man KKKarl Rove busy buying Senate and House seats all over America right now.

Welcome to a new kind of democracy (Fascisim), people...
