  1. McConnell prefers his corporate donors be more like Silent Partners who just shut up and invest with him.

  2. Congress is Controlled by lobbyists
    from around the world, especially chÿna.

  3. Corporations who speak against voter ID, should also not require ID for their services.

  4. I hope that corporations decide to stay out of politics and stop giving money to politicians. That being said, I doubt there is a CEO in the country who is concerned about empty threats from Mitch McConnell.

  5. Rightwing Nazi Corporations own the GOP. KOCHS, MURDOCH, NRA, etc… Our Senators are nothing more than an extended arm of the Corporate world. They do not even represent the citizens. Anybody with a big bank account can get laws passed in America Foreign nations included. Look at the dominance of a foreign nation over hollywood and the nba look at the 305 like Senator Cotton who signed a letter pledging allegiance to a foreign nation. McConnell is a Senator because the citizens of his state cannot vote him out. He has used his position to enrich himself him and his wife. They should be in jail. But in the USA it would take an act of God to bring the rich and powerful and anyone that is connected to the government to justice. They can lie rob steal murder and molest at will for all the world to see and never have to worry about the repercussions of their actions.America is nothing more than Russia or China with sugar and cream. It taste good but its really the same old coffee.

  6. McConnell said that corporations would be used by the “far left” to overthrow the government. This comes only 3 months to the day after the far RIGHT tried to overthrow the government and almost succeeded.

  7. You heard him stop all corporate campaign contributions to the Republican Party. I also love how Mitch throws around the word (bipartisan) now only after the republicans lost the house, the Senate, and the presidency

  8. Corporations are going with the policy that’s good for their bottom line and business.

    Less pandering and more policy that works for them and their revenue. Some of those policies happen to be left. Some happen to be right. Sorry that people don’t like that.

    They have more insight into the future than we do honestly. Predictive modeling, data, consumer behavior, etc all runs these decisions.

  9. Mitch….you are the biggest hippocrite this country ever know…..you always go with what is good financially for Mitch…..Please retire and let this country survive and get on with true Democracy

  10. Recently watched CNBC badger coke ceo into making a statement over GA voting law. These idiots don’t care about the details or state rights. They’ll support a false narrative if that’s what their backers want. Dems are pushing for Federal run elections..one state, one party, one media, one narrative ….no thanks.

  11. If Mitch wants business out of politics he has the power to end Citizen’s United.
