DeMint doesn't understand capitalism.

One of the major goals of a corporation is to capture enough market share to make barriers to entry too high.  Entrepreneurs, however, find niches in an industry and exploit that niche, growing their own business in the process. 

Does anyone dispute that patent laws and regulations have helped American pharmaceutical industry to be one of the most innovative and productive in the world? 

As far as tax carve outs, how are tax breaks for oil companies which allow them to invest in new technologies, "bad for the economy"?

What is happening here is that Heritage, with its constant criticism of business and the Chamber of Commerce, has alienated corporate donors, so DeMint has to gin up anger among the individual donors to keep his doors open.  And he, along with the Democrats, suffered a huge defeat last week with the Supreme Court's McCutcheon decision.  Corporate donors are going to have more of a presence in campaigns, and more influence.

A lot more influence than Heritage.

It would appear that someone here has difficulty distinguishing between Corporatism and Capitalism!

Big business has become even bigger by climbing in bed with politicians who sell out.  One wonders why the insurance and pharmaceutical industries were so quiet during the ramp up to Obamacare being shoved down our throats?  The promise of a big payoff is why.  They all seek more and more power and money at the expense of the individual.

If you cannot sell your product on it's own merits get the government to MANDATE it's purchase!  (See Obamacare)

It would appear that someone here thinks we live in a fascist state, akin to Mussolini's Italy.  Conspiracy theories abound!!!!

You fail to see the irony!

Mandating the purchase of health insurance as a way to lower the cost of healthcare was an idea first advanced in 1989............by the Heritage Foundation.

Corporations have committees that decide on political donations. They act in their own informed best interests, of the firm they represent.

I wonder how many of them heard his remarks, and said: "...screw him and Heritage?"

Heritage is not the only game in town for those donations. If I was a board member of Heritage, I would ask if he is really right for the job?
