Of by for

The most incredible thing about John Boehner (R-BP) and the Chamber of Commerce is how openly they side with corporations against the interests of the people. I guess it's the Chamber's job, but Boehner is elected by actual voters.

Then again, they believe in managing incentives so that they get all of them, and there haven't been many consequences at all for corporatists. The media doesn't enforce any, and many Americans are so captive of the pro-corporate narrative that often the voters don't enforce anything.

A good politician could make Republicans pay for their lazy inability to hide their true allegiance.

Update (6/13): Looks as though Boehner wants to walk this one waaay back. Even a corporate hack like him can see the danger of shilling so boldly for BP.
