The Tea Party Operates At The Expense Of The Business Community's Priorities
The Official Story
"Coming after the overthrow of big business Republican Eric Cantor, this will require another rapid revision in the Tea-Party-versus-GOP-establishment narrative. But the daily vicissitudes in that ongoing story are beside the point. The bigger story is that on many key issues, the business community is getting nothing for its investment in the GOP establishment’s picks. The GOP is letting Tea Party predilections and preoccupations set the party’s agenda — at the direct expense of the business community’s priorities." Greg Sargent in The Washington Post.
