The party uses conspiracy theories to expose the rift in climate change denialism
For more than half a century, the sound of the unique Beaux Art-style building of the Chamber of Commerce near the White House is predictable: this is the incarnation of American commerce, more specifically, a shared one with the American business community Series of interests. Party, Republican Party.
However, the party’s ties with the country’s business sector are weakening.
The Republicans accepted the conspiracy theory against climate change denialism and the veto of the 2020 election. The rift was opened. The most recent turning point was in Georgia, where a new Republican-backed law restricting voting rights was introduced. Aroused severe criticism from Delta Air Lines. Lines and the state-based Coca-Cola led to the withdrawal of Major League Baseball from Atlanta in the 2021 All-Star Game.
The Republicans were angered. The Minority Leader of the Kentucky Senate, Mitch McConnell, warned that his actions were “quite stupid” and alienated “many Republican fanatics.” Republican strategists believe that they no longer need money from American companies, and they try to focus on the working class winning elections.
As the Democrats unify their control of the federal government for the first time in a decade, this has expanded the opportunities for President Joe Biden and Congressional Democrats to find allies in unlikely places. Biden is pushing for an ambitious $2.3 trillion infrastructure package, which includes increasing corporate taxes.
Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo estimates that she has spoken to more than 50 business leaders about the plan, including a round of phone calls over the Easter weekend. She encourages companies to focus on the entire program instead of increasing taxes.
If business disagreements with the Republican Party widen, this may help answer questions about the country’s political direction and the extent to which business can continue to affect Washington.
