Government =/= Chamber of Commerce

This year, I hope to receive my master's in organizational management. And I am horrified by the position that government is supposed to operate as though it is a business.

Chambers of commerce have no business dictating to government, no matter what one Republican legislator thinks. Businesses conflate what is good for them with what is good for country and community. It should be a priority to keep those interests separate and, certainly for legislators, to understand why they are kept separate.
