Welcome to Big Business Watch

Big Business Watch tracks the public policy agenda of big business and aggressively challenges CEOs when their policies run counter to the tenets of free enterprise, limited government and liberty.

Big Business has played a major role in passing ObamaCare and some of the largest corporations are backing Obama's effort to regulate energy. We can't ignore the driving force big business plays in public policy.

Welcome to Big Business Watch

Big Business Watch tracks the public policy agenda of big business and aggressively challenges CEOs when their policies run counter to the tenets of free enterprise, limited government and liberty.

Big Business has played a major role in passing ObamaCare and some of the largest corporations are backing Obama's effort to regulate energy. We can't ignore the driving force big business plays in public policy.

Energy Regulations

Big Business is partnering with President Obama to regulate and tax carbon emissions. Major corporations have joined coalitions such as BICEP (Business for Innovative Climate & Energy Policy) and USCAP (United States Climate Action Partnership) to advance regulations of fossil fuel based energy – coal, oil and natural gas – that currently provides about 85 percent of our country's energy.

Below is a table that lists the companies that are members of BICEP and USCAP. By pushing for President Obama's energy policy these companies are actively lobbying for regulations that will raise the cost of your gasoline and utility bills as well as cause jobs to move overseas.

Be aware that if you are buying any products from the companies listed below your money is being used to fund a lobbying effort that seeks to raise energy prices and lower your standard of living.

If you disagree with their effort to advance energy regulations, we urge you to voice your complaint by contacting the company and also by possibly deciding to buy a competitor's product.
