Why big business failed to stop its worst nightmare in D.C.

It's avery effective and destructive third party that doesn't play well with others." At the same time, big business torpedoed moderates that had backed Obamacare and financial regulatory reforms, helping a band of hard-core free-market conservatives take back the House in 2010. "It's easy to look back on that and say, 'Wouldn't you rather have an Allen Boyd than Steve Southerland ?' " ponders the business trade group lobbyist. "But at the time, you're playing in a much bigger global political environment than you can control. Andyou're between the devil you know and the devil you don't know." A contributing factor is that few of America's biggest businesses are this link purely American anymore, having taken full advantage of free trade and lower labor costs around the world. That has two effects.First, since they've offshored or automated much of their workforces, it's harder to tell a legislator that Washington dysfunction is hurting jobs in their district. And second, their stake in America isn't as large as it used to be: If business conditions deteriorate at home, they can invest more heavily in Brazil or China instead.
