In Obama’s interview with Rolling Stone, he suggests FreedomWorks is an industry front group:
“some very traditional, very powerful, special-interest lobbies. I don’t think this is a secret. Dick Armey and FreedomWorks, which was one of the first organizational mechanisms to bring Tea Party folks together, are financed by very conservative industries…”
In reality, FreedomWorks has challenged corporate special interest groups with the Free Enterprise Project. Together, they confronted industries such as General Electric, John Deere and Duke Energy who are lobbying for Obama’s cap-and-trade legislation.
Meanwhile, I bet Obama won’t say anything about the massive amount of money behind the progressives’ One Nation march in Washington D.C. this weekend.
