Obama Considers Chamber Visit, CEO Summit to Counter Anti-Business Image

November 22, 2010 06:21

The Obama administration has been at odds with the Chamber, which fought Obama’s health-care and financial regulatory overhauls and committed $75 million to political ads in the midterm congressional elections, mainly directed against Democrats.

Donohue said that U.S. companies are facing a “tsunami” of regulations that are becoming a tax on citizens while disagreeing with McConnell’s proposed solution of pushing for Obama’s defeat.

“It’s not our intention to weaken the president in any way,” Donohue told reporters after his Nov. 17 speech. “We are ready to walk across this park and work with the administration on any issue.”
