The Chamber of Commerce doesn't like the Ethics bill:

"The ethics proposal being evaluated by a special session of the General Assembly poses a "great risk" to the business community's ability to interact with the government, the Tennessee Chamber of Commerce & Industry said in a newsletter sent to its members."

(link...)

Is it just me, or does anyone else think that the real problem with government at all level has to do with Corporate interests getting unfair advantage when it comes to lobbying?

Corporations (and I have a couple) simply have no soul or conscience. The bigger they get, the more true this becomes. If the Chamber of Commerce is pissed...Well, that's got to be a good thing.
