Business group praises 20 Democrats

Washington (CNN) – A national business advocacy organization singled out 20 Democrats Friday for opposing two major elements of President Obama's policy agenda: health care reform and climate change legislation.

It was a rare shout out for Democrats from a business group, which historically, as an industry, sides with Republican candidates.

"Elections are meant to drive the direction of public policy decisions that don't always break neatly along party lines," Gregory S. Casey, president and CEO of the Business-Industry Political Action Committee said in a statement.

  2. get real

    "pro-prosperity"??? Like anyone is running on an anti-prosperity platform.

    I'm so sick of these stupid labels. By the way, there are democratic, republican and independent patriots, too!

    These are the same businessmen that are still awaiting paybacks for their campaign donations and lobbying interests.

    No true executive believing in the merits of free market capitalism could ever endorse anyone that sides with the Socialist-In-Chief Barry "the Erkel" Soetoro!

    Without "health care reform and climate change legislation" the US will continue on the path to become a third world country.
    And now we have a list of 20 Democratic politicians who vote on the side of arrogance and ignorance just like all the Republican politicians.
