The news is out: [At 3:37 p.m. on Jan. 6, the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) became one of the first industry groups to call for President Trump’s removal in light of his responsibility for the “disgusting episode” of “mob rule” taking place at the U.S. Capitol. Wrote NAM head Jay Timmons: “The outgoing president incited violence in an attempt to retain power, and any elected leader defending him is violating their oath to the Constitution and rejecting democracy in favor of anarchy.”
This is an extraordinary statement from an organization that was a major booster and beneficiary of the Trump administration’s focus on manufacturing. In fact, the NAM helped craft the bills that brought tax cuts, regulatory relief and incentives for manufacturing investment.]
This is another reality check on a rotten system: corporations decide on the laws being enacted for the people; not the legislators.
