A fortress for the business community, the chamber has emerged as a multitasking, multimillion-dollar defender of the private sector against presidential initiatives.
The Chamber of Commerce has become a leading critic of the administration's health care and banking overhaul plans – because there plans are a direct attack on the private business community.
The chamber has created a $2 million campaign against Obama's proposals that would make the government a competitor in the health insurance market. With 3 million members, the chamber is working with local and regional affiliates on the campaign stop lawmakers from passing the proposed bills.
The group also is readying an ambitious $100 million campaign to advocate for businesses and a free enterprise system.
