Seeing as how big business might just be getting a little uncomfortable about the Tea Party acting against crony capitalism after the Cantor upset, here’s the latest from the Kronies about the Ex-Im bank:
The Tea Party has a real desire to derail the Big Government gravy train in favor of, well, the way the American economy should run. Free markets anyone? New businesses forming without the weight of absurd over-regulation? No amnesty to import massive amounts of cheap labor and drive down wages? No Ex-Im bank? The sort of refusal to distort the markets that might just help put our economy back on track? Big donors seem a little hostile to that.
It might help for them to remember that even if politicians that win bought and paid for primary victories are going to be friendly to them, those politicians still have to win in the general election. No one’s really loving the Establishment sorts here lately, so it might just be their ROI is DOA in November regardless. There’s no point in electing two sets of enemies.
