As Bill McKibben said, the Chamber \”spends more money lobbying than the next five lobbies combined …\”
\”It spent more money on politics last year than the Republican National Committee and the Democratic National Committee combined, and 94% of that went to climate deniers.\”
Here\’s the list of the top ten donors to federal politics (I would assume that this is what we mean by lobbying? Given politicians money?)
|American Fedn of State, County & Municipal Employees||$45,037,993|
|National Assn of Realtors||$39,494,410|
|National Education Assn||$36,188,345|
|Service Employees International Union||$35,854,539|
|American Assn for Justice||$33,664,771|
|Intl Brotherhood of Electrical Workers||$32,920,954|
|American Federation of Teachers||$31,021,128|

I have to admit that I don\’t see the Chamber of Commerce there.
What is it that I\’m missing?
