Obama administration bypasses US Chamber of Commerce

In another blow to the increasingly irrelevant and obstructionist US Chamber of Commerce, the Obama administration is going directly to CEOs of major US corporations, bypassing the Chamber entirely.

Historically, the Chamber of Commerce has served as something of a gatekeeper: if powerful policymakers wanted to make headway with business leaders, they had to go through the Chamber to get to them. The White House prefers to simply go around the gatekeeper and engage the community directly.

We will continue to keep our eyes on this series of events.
