You with the tan, what’s the plan?

Plan A: On Sept. 28, 2010, Republicans blocked a Democratic bill that would have ended tax deductions enjoyed by companies that move their businesses overseas. The bill would have given a tax break to employers who hired new US workers.

Plan B: According to a recently exposed Conservative “Think Progress” report, the US Chamber of Congress received hundreds of thousands of dollars in dues from state-owned companies in the Middle-Eastern mogul metropolis of Bahrain, the fastest growing economy in the Arab world; and India, the world’s second largest labor force.

The Chamber relies on its nonprofit status and under the tax code, should not be a primary participant in political campaign activity. But the US Chamber of Commerce spent a whopping $75 million in these midterm elections to promote Republican candidates and their corporate-backed interests.

Plan C: You get to vote for Democratic candidates who fight to grow jobs and feed families in the United States of America or Republican candidates that continue to support and strengthen the labor forces in foreign countries like Bahrain, India, China, etc.

Boehner, you with the fake tan … what’s the real plan?
