So what is the “business community’s agenda”? To engage in unholy alliances and cozy arrangements with the government to waste taxpayers’ money when it suits them?

We made a real mistake in lowering their taxes. Now they don't need us anymore.

This comes after three years of frustration over GOP insurgents roughing up the business community's agenda.

Sometimes you really have to laugh at the GOP-E a--clowns.

Keep it up boys, stoke the fires :)

The repsonse to this nonsense is pretty simple and straightforward. Don’t frequent any business pushing this crap, don’t contribute to the RNC, don’t vote for the establishment candidate, fund and vote for only those who reflect your conservative values. Nothing says you’re on the wrong track quicker than dwindling balance sheets.

All that, and never ever vote for an establishment candidate in a general election.

That’s how you really get their attention.

If we have all RINOs in the House and Senate- then there is no point in having 2 parties. We’ll all become Democrats - the results would be the same.

The MSM tries to convince the GOP that it’s problem wasn’t running a RINO for president, but rather that it wasn’t RINO enough.

Nice try though.

I hope that they realize that their actions will give total control to the Democrats.

The Dems understand you can’t lose your base.

Perhaps, as a Party we should fight for large personal income tax cuts and large increases on large corporations.

We have to be pragmatic with our policy decisions.

I hope they know that can work BOTH WAYS!

“frustration over GOP insurgents”

Rising in revolt against established authority, especially a government. 2. Rebelling against the leadership of a political party.

An insurgency is an armed rebellion against a constituted authority.

She hit the nail on the head about crony capitalism.

In my book crony capitalism is not really capitalism to start with, just a collection of insider crooks aligned with RATS and RINOS equally.

The Tea party is pro biz, free enterprise...

But the GOPe isn't. They are for rentseeking crony capitalism where the politicians can enrich themselves selling favors to businesses who want the government to mandate markets and to hobble competition. They are afraid of living in a truly competitive free market.

Psst...hey..... Mr. “Business Community”...

Don’t tell nobodies dis, but... guess what...?

We Tea Party people SHOP in your businesses and buy your products... and that money ya’lls loves so much??? Guess what... we can take that to businesses that support us...

But hey... don’t worry...I’m sure the socialists will treat your private corporations well... we know the great track record the Left has with businesses... you know, the same folks who came up with NIFTY little expressions like “when we hang the last Capitalist, it’ll be with the rope they sold us...”

You’ll have a GREAT time with that crew! Fun for All!

They don't. The idea is to clear the way for the progressive agenda while pretending to be in opposition.

This is just the way the socalled big business republican estAblishment plans to elect Hillary for eight more years of fascist- style graft corruption and profits. Just like they elected islamo- fascist 0 by nominating a comets loser R candidate in 2008 ( who spent his campaign assuring America how good his opponent was ). And like they RE- elected O in 2012 by nominating a man whose chief claim to fame was a local predecessor version of Obama’s commiecare. Prepare for eight years of the same wonderful anti-American policies , but with an (allegedly) feminine touch. As the same little group of powerful R party “establishment “ types shaft USA again
