Rahm Emanuel will now attempt to win over the Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber doesn’t need to capitulate — the progressive agenda is anti-business and this is one area where cooperation is deadly. The Chamber is doing the right thing to resist the healthcare takeover and cap and trade legislation.
This is representationally important, a symbol of the free market standing against an over-reaching government. How the Chamber reacts can either inspire opposition to the progressive agenda or it can deflate opposition at a time when vigilance is necessary to fight for free market principles.
I don’t want to overstate the position in which our country is placed, but it’s obviously not a time to back down.
