Pro Business Coalition Ranks Votes of Congress
In an article from the Federal Times, author Sarah Chocko discusses a recent report conducted by a coalition of businesses in favor of privatization. The entire report can be found here. Ms. Chocko described how the report was conducted: "The coalition’s report lists how each member of the U.S. House and Senate voted on legislation, amendments and procedural actions — 10 in each house — that would have allowed private companies to compete with government workers or impeded companies’ competition for federal contracts." As one would expect, most Republican leaders voted in line with the coalition favoring more privatization, while most Democratic leaders voted against expanding privatization.
