Two leaders of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Monday sent a letter to business leaders reminding them that House Democrats last week voted unanimously for legislation to raise the debt limit and avert potential default while a majority of House Republicans voted against it. Many in the business community had urged Congress to avoid a shutdown and potential default because of its unsettling impact on the economy and the business climate. [...]Presumably many if not most of the businesses who receive the letter will ignore it because they still believe Republicans Are The Party Of Business™, but they should remember that when it came down it, it was Democrats who voted to end the Republican shutdown, and it was Democrats who voted to take default off the table.
“If you are as frustrated as we are, we hope you will remember that it is House Democrats who stood with you,” said the letter, cosigned by Rep. Steve Israel (D., N.Y.), chairman of the DCCC, and the committee’s finance chairman, Rep. Jim Himes (D., Conn.).”There is currently only one party in the House that is working to create an environment where our economy can grow and thriving businesses can create jobs.”
Bottom-line: Democrats are better for the economy than Republicans.
