The Loaded Chamber
Help support the making of The Loaded Chamber
The Loaded Chamber is an innovative journalistic project in the best tradition of American muckraking — a series of video exposés on the most powerful lobbying force in Washington: the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Since taking power in 1997, the Chamber’s head, Tom Donohue, has changed it from a centrist trade group into an election-buying behemoth that ruthlessly pushes the interests of corporate CEO’s, at the expense of small businesses, shareholders, workers, and the vast majority of Americans. As Congress debated the reform of Wall Street, the health insurance industry, and our energy sector, the Chamber spent $3 million a week to pour sand in the gears. Now, THE LOADED CHAMBER reveals where that money went, what it means for our viewers, and what we all can do about it.
