Chamber of Commerce to Spend $100 Million To Target "Right-Wing" Tea Party Congressmen

Because Corporate Welfare is as American as graft.

Roll Call:

The Chamber of Commerce has reportedly budgeted $100 million to destroy the Tea Party this election cycle and news of the chamberís plans came not-so-coincidentally days after House Speaker Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) announced that he would be resigning from Congress.

As Roll Call noted, the chamberís "top targets in 2016 will be right-wing, tea party candidates" and its ultimate goal is to reportedly win back "the soul of the Republican Party" for the GOP establishment establishment by helping elect more moderate candidates "in contested primaries to strengthen their hand during policy debates on the Hill."

Apparently "the soul of the party" is all about the Ex-Im Bank, ethanol subsidies, and growing government.

More: I missed the more-topical news hook here, which is that the Chamber of Commerce is specifically threatening to primary any Freedom Caucus members who oppose Paul Ryan as Speaker.
