"Corporations understand that democracy and capitalism go hand in hand, so if Republicans are going to keep trying to destroy democracy, corporate America will become their powerful enemy."
This is true although not everyone understands that. Rather, they believe what corporations want is usually if not always the opposite of what everyone one else wants.
And by "want" I'm referring to what corporations seek to gain by purchasing influence from folks like McConnell.
But understand corporations have the ability to walk across the hall to talk to the Democratic party. Democrats aren't anti-business and will work with corporations on most issues.
What confuses people is the belief that corporations are just like all other special interest groups such as unions, pro-minority groups, womens issues, abortion, etc...those groups are all pretty much dedicated to 1 party. Corporations are not beholden to 1 party in the same way...again, this confuses people into believing corporations have only 1 party to lobby.
McConnell has been receiving support from the business community his whole career....so I get why he is pushing the envelope with them.
but he'll back off when push comes to shove. He'll have no choice. It's not like the GOP is going to start a relationship with the groups I just mentioned.
