President Obama speaks at U.S. Chamber of Commerce
President Obama extended another olive branch to the business community Monday morning with a speech to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
The relationship between the president and the chamber, which represents 3 million companies and is considered to be the most powerful business lobby in Washington, was somewhat chilly during his first two years in office. The chamber and the president butted heads on foreign money in elections. And the group strongly opposed financial services regulations and health-care reform -- arguably the two most important legislative projects on Obama's agenda.
Tweet President Obama will soon speak at the Chamber of Commerce. The nation's biggest business lobby has characterized Obama as anti-business, while others say he's too supportive. What do you think? Tell us what you think by using #ObamaBiz on Twitter and we'll post some responses right here.
