Posted on 01/05/2014 5:55:30 PM PST by JeepersFreepers
Some of Texas biggest business trade groups are moving to counter tea party and anti-government forces that have dominated recent Republican primaries.
The movement mirrors the schism happening nationally between hard right and establishment Republicans. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce recently pledged $50 million to back pro-business Republicans in U.S. Senate primaries and fight tea party insurgents.
Michael Quinn Sullivan, president of the fiscal-hawk group Empower Texans said the Texas Future Business Alliance is nothing but a group of big-money interests wanting taxpayer dollars to flow into their pockets. This is what weve come to expect coming out of the Washington, anti-Ted Cruz movement, Sullivan said. They want people who will vote for cronyism and corporate welfare.

Corporatists going all out it seems.
And what’s the bet that union money is behind some of this as well. We’re onto you Karl Rove!
They ain’t republicans
But they’z queers....
corporations want bigger govt and higher taxes??
yea, that makes sense
What a shame. It’s all about the $$$$.
We’ve lost our republic.
Look at the economic development fund. Every state has one and every one gives taxpayer money to private business.
The Texas Future Business Alliance a mix of 10 major business groups,
including the chemical industry, bankers, builders and contractors is
sending out mailers and providing other support on behalf of GOP candidates
who have supported water infrastructure development, highway construction
and education spending.
They can be player statewide with money in many races involving the Texas Legislature.
Looks like you haven’t been told the truth about the economy in Texas.
I’ve read elsewhere that the economy in Texas is based on cheap illegal alien labor, both in the agriculture and construction sectors.
Good article, all around. Thanks. Watching the establishment’s sting at being nailed as establishment is satisfying.
cheap illegal alien labor
Illegal alien doesn’t necessarily mean cheap.
Wanna bet that Rove has his paws in there somewhere?
Turning red states blue is suicide, but the corporates who benefited from American capitalism have turned the corner on America’s economic health and even on her best interests, partnered with and sometime sold out to globalists, until who hasn’t thrown in with the globalists is an ever shrinking number.
Conservative big pockets are about to get picked, bought and sold, until this Republic folds up and cooperates. When Texas implodes, I wonder what’s left short of,......you-know-what.
Before long we may be down to Smith & Wesson, Duck Dynasty markets, and chicfilet franchises.
Yes, so very true.
You betcha. Taste the panic.
But mostly I smell Cornyn sweat.
Unlike Iowa, California, New York, Florida, Washington, Illinois, Maine, Connecticut....
All the Business Socialists and Free Trader Communists know the Tea Party can end their taxpayer funded schemes
Sad that most of the wealthy and corporates are the biggest Socialists around
