How the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Hurts Americans

Personal Injury AttorneyThe U.S. Chamber of Commerce routinely engages in lawsuits and other actions designed to stifle the rights of ordinary Americans. As a New Jersey personal injury firm, we fight for the rights of consumers to be protected from harmful products. Here is a brief list of the top 10 ways the U.S. Chamber hurts Americans:

  1. Even after the financial crisis of 2008 and the collapse of institutions such as Bear Stearns and AIG, the U.S. Chamber continued to push for weaker regulations and less accountability for financial firms, yet at the same time, they pushed for massive, unconditional federal bailouts.

  2. The U.S. chamber opposes efforts to curtail climate change, and has threatened to sue the Environmental Protection Agency over its reform efforts.

  3. The U.S. Chamber spends hundreds of millions lobbying for anti-consumer laws restricting the rights of Americans to sue, but engages in an average of two lawsuits a week on behalf of its corporate members.

  4. The U.S. Chamber is mostly funded by just 16 large corporations, despite its claims to represent the interests of small businesses.

  5. The U.S. Chamber often gives priority to foreign corporations over its American partners, including Middle Eastern petroleum companies and Airbus.

  6. The U.S. Chamber pours millions into local and state elections to back pro-corporate candidates, to the detriment of state and local chambers that prefer to stay out of politics and have left the national organization in protest.

  7. The U.S. Chamber blurs the line between legitimate media and corporate propaganda and has defended the practice of witness-tampering.

  8. B.P., the company responsible for the worst oil spill in U.S. history, turned to the U.S. Chamber to thwart any attempt at stricter regulations or punishment by lawmakers.

  9. The U.S. Chamber has lobbied for binding arbitration clauses to be forced upon consumers and restricting their right to sue, yet opposes arbitration when it comes to union contracts.

  10. The U.S. Chamber has spent nearly a billion dollars in lobbying Congress since 2000.

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of... Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!! They get a 5 out of 5 stars from me!!read more
