You know, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce typically doesn't put itself out there as a big fan of socialism. But that all changes when we're talking about risk and liability. In those cases, they love socialism to death! And that's basically how Chamber President Tom Donohue is framing his call to put a greater share of the oil spill price tag on you and me:
"It is generally not the practice of this country to change the laws after the game," said Tom Donohue, the president of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. ". . . Everybody is going to contribute to this clean up. We are all going to have to do it. We are going to have to get the money from the government and from the companies and we will figure out a way to do that."

Communist, Socialism for corporations EVERY SINGLE TIME they SCREW UP,
over & over & over again,
and slavery capitalism for taxpayers & unborn babies to pay for all this CORPORATE WELFARE.
We pay the taxes, they get represented & profiteer from 'our' government.
That is corporate tyranny.
When will Americans FINALLY rise up against corporate tyranny?
I guess we don't have the spine & conviction of our forefathers & foremothers.
