    LGDB: If this were the case we wouldn't have minimum wage laws, paid overtime, OSHA or anti-discrimination laws.

Not sure I follow this part. I think businesses can spend their money on what they want as long as it's legal and allowed by their own laws. But I don't like how businesses can buy political support. The goals of a business may be antithetic to what's good for society. Of course, not always. But sometimes.

I don't have a problem with businesses standing up to lawmakers if lawmakers propose a law or regulation that's a bad idea. A lot of times, regulations and laws can be genuinely bad ideas, and business should weigh in on that. But I don't like the thought that they can ensure certain things don't get done by buying a vote.
