K Street lobbyist and former GOP congressional aide John Feehery warns that this is a dangerous for the Right to walk, asking:
What would happen if Big Business decided to change sides? What would happen if the Chamber of Commerce suddenly stopped being a huge fundraising machine for the Republican Party and started financing pro-business Democrats?
First of all, Big Business has always played both sides. Second of all, Feehery is right that this would be a dream come true for corporatist Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer. But for people who want the GOP to advance free enterprise, would it be all that bad?
