The Florida Chamber of Commerce is a Person

The Florida Chamber of Commerce is a person. The Supreme Court ruled so in Citizens United v. FEC. The person known as the Florida Chamber of Commerce has created the Florida Jobs CCE. The CCE has been used by other people such as AutoNation, Florida Power & Light, and Publix Supermarkets.

Here is how much these corporations people have donated to Florida Jobs CCE.

AutoNation
$100,000

Florida Power & Light
$250,000

Publix Supermarkets
$400,000

The Florida Chamber of Commerce gave $175,000 to incoming Florida Senate President Andy Gardiner. What does the Chamber of Commerce want Gardner and other Republicans to do? Chamber President Mark Wilson has fought to cut unemployment compensation, increase homeowner insurance and bust unions. These are hardly populist positions in a time of economic woe.

If the Florida Chamber of Commerce is a person would you want to hang out with him?
