Corporations halt donations to GOP who voted to overturn elections

Publisert 11. jan.. 2021
Some of America's biggest companies are suspending donations to Republican Congress members who objected to the Electoral College's votes.
The growing list of those corporations, including BlueCross BlueShield, Citigroup (C), Commerce Bank and Marriott (MAR), comes after a pro-Trump mob breached the US Capitol last Wednesday to fight against the ceremonial counting of electoral votes that confirmed President-elect Joe Biden's win.
147 Republicans voted against certification of the electoral votes in a joint session of Congress last Wednesday evening. They included Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley, Kansas Sen. Roger Marshall, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Alabama Sen. Tommy Tuberville, among hundreds other congress members.
"At the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association, we continuously evaluate our political contributions to ensure that those we support share our values and goals," said Kim Keck, BlueCross BlueShield's president and CEO, in a statement. "In light of this week's violent, shocking assault on the United States Capitol, and the votes of some members of Congress to subvert the results of November's election by challenging Electoral College results, BCBSA will suspend contributions to those lawmakers who voted to undermine our democracy."
The health insurance company's BLUEPAC political action committee -- supported only by employee contributions -- donated $246,750 to Republican lawmakers during the 2020 cycle. That included $10,000 to Sen. Tuberville, $1,000 to Sen. Marshall and $500 to Sen. Hawley.
BlueCross BlueShield said it's stopping donations to all 147 Republicans who challenged the Electoral College results.

  • Good choke these nasty and dangerous politicians...

  • "Money is the oxygen of politics"?!? Obviously.THAT is the problem! Get rid of Citizens United. Oh right, that isn't going to happen because that same money funded the election of a fascist Supreme Court (thanks to the help that those same dollars bought from Mitch - only Republicans get to choose Justices - McConnell). Screw the lot of you. This was the obvious and predictable result of the last 12 years.

  • Very good first step!! This is the way to make change effectively! The Republicans are facing a whole New world tying their horse to Trump's carriage. Money decides who wins elections and who loses, make no mistake. It's not right but it's the reality of politics. Now you will see a swift pivot away from TRUMPISM!!

  • Why aren't any of the polls being done support what he's saying?

  • Why are ppl so passive?

  • “Ted Cruz is a disgrace to America’s Constitution & the people of Texas & the citizens of Texas who elected Ted Cruz... Cruz’s lies & agreement that continues to promote sedition is an act of treason & must be seen as nothing else... P.O.W. M.I.A. Never Forget

  • 👍

  • How cute. Billionaires and corporations fund terrorism, insurrection and treason but don't want to be held accountable.

  • If Cooperations Paid Their Employees Instead Of Paying To Stop Good Policy’s Passing In Congress. 🗣 TERM LIMITS! 🗣 Abolish Super pacs! 🗣 Disclosure Of ALL Income Going In & Coming Out. CROOKS 👁 👁

  • This corporation cutting ties With senators and house of Representative is over due Auction,definitely is move in The Right direction.

  • I AM SO HAPPY 😃THESE REPUBLICAN 👹TRAITORS👹 ARE GETTING PAID BACK BY THEIR OWN COIN👍👍👍👍

  • Well done bankers.

  • Better late than never, but sooner would have saved a s$$tload of trouble

  • They should or ppl should not buy nothing from these companies cuz enough is enough. Trump needs go and out of everyone lives...

  • That’s right way to do it, if you big companies don’t give anything or support those one betrayed our country then their mouths and their actions will shut up and hands tighter and won’t be able destroying our democracy system.., I am right or not?

  • Leftist fascism is here. ☹️

  • I'm glad i don't live in the US but in a real 1st world country greetz from THE NETHERLANDS

  • 👏👏👏

  • Hawley, Cruz and more of these agitators for terrorism are now on OAN and other radical 'news' sites begging for funding. You cannot make this up. They have websites set up to ask for money (poor them) and OAN promotes these websites and made a lot of advertising about people donating into those 'donation sites'.

  • Good end donations to the evil enablers. Hey, Hey !! guys you're in deep doo doo now. Just don't let the door hit you guys on the way out. 147 of you deadly traitors who hate America and American values will feel the shame of slamming doors behind you. Send the paddy wagon to the White House to get these traitors who are hiding in white House. The White supremacist will be out finally.

  • Insurrection is very bad for business.

  • This is scary. How did we come to this???? (Rhetorical question) I’ve always wondered....what the fat bastard was bribing them with. I thought he knew their deepest darkest secrets and using that against them. But I was wrong. All he has to do is give an order or say something and congress man/woman would be dead. I pray we put a stop to this. It isn’t fair for the rest of USA to live like this. First was the covid and now this, what’s next war with Iran. And he probably thinks he’s untouchable and send his cult to do the fighting 🤬🤬🤬🤬 ugh this man makes me sick. He’s a sore loser and can’t take it 🤬🤬🤬🤬

  • They already had an ungodly amount of loopholes and deductions prior. Where does the buck stop? 0% corp taxes? Negative corp taxes?

  • All lawmakers who participated in the insurrection should be punished, ALL!

  • Hit them in the pocket, that’s gotta hurt them, real bad.

  • The party should be kicking out of the party all of those who voted against the fair election. They can sit as independent until they are either impeached, recalled or un-elected. In a sane world.... They would be done.

  • We have to make it illegal to lie to people

  • These two corrupts are here to destroy our country, our democracy, our constitution by lying. The election of 2020 was very fair and square. All the courts, supreme courts, governors, state secretaries have proven that over and over

  • At least they have a chance of not being primaried. Pence and mitch can kiss their careers goodbye Never mind they better move out of town.

  • How the hell did he get reelected? What the hell Texas?

  • For political power these two senators Hawley and Cruz will sell their family and country. These guys are Trump ass lickers. Vanity is being considered as a virtue in this country. Very dangerous !!

  • In america its who can raise the most money to stomp out their competitors...this system is fucked up

I'm going to go buy me some Amazon tonight while drinking me a nice democrat Star bucks coffee while reading the Washington Post and then I'm going to book a em for next weekend at airbnb. Thanks companies.

  • Thank you to the companies who support the good of the country. I will never spend a dime to support violence or companies who support republicans and Bigalow Bois or any company that hires these people. We have power in our purchases and I don't support companies or news channels that are liars.

  • Corporate America should be excluded from all funding and participation in any election.

  • That was long overdue! Divert that fund to employees benefits instead of donating it to these ambitious trump enablers.

  • They are suspending the donations for 6 months! When do the next elections start up? In like 6 months.. This is a bullshit display of posturing. They can donate dark money to republican super PACs and get all the glory the media will bask them in. Pathetic. Get money out of politics. Clean and fair elections without bribery.

  • Unless multiple Republican Party Kakatocrats and Insurrectionists are indicted, tried and put in Prison... I predict these same corporations will flood Republican Party Kakatocracy with unprecedented amounts of money before July 4th & will Praise themselves for their Treachery

  • Wow, they NEED to replace all of those representatives.

  • I support trump.

  • Banana Republic politics. Its called "LA MORDIDA" (the bite) in those countries. And, some "gringos" feel superior to them. Hah! Clean your own back yard first.

  • Business doesn't want to pay for the New Jim Crow GOP. ... Cruz and Hawley need to get out. ... But, this is who the GOP after Trump will be. ... Pence had a chance to take over the party by outing Trump with the 25th. but he didn't have what it takes. ... Trump has destroyed the party with hate and 74 million Americans love to hate and voted for the worse president in history. ...

  • Ted Cruz...a Spanish speaking Cuban pretending to be a hard core southern boy...lol, and a Harvard graduate...lol

  • It’s all about money & power for Republicans. McCarthy went of Fox State TV and said “Trump won the election.” Exhorted the viewers not to be quiet about it - we can’t let this happen (“this” presumably being the democracy where the person with the most votes wins). He told the Fox State TV viewers that Republicans will never back down. Then he saw the potential dollar signs disappearing as one after another previous donors shut the funds off. The threats of donations - or, in other words bribes to get lucrative concessions - seemed to change his mind a bit. So he then went from “Trump won” to “Trump was responsible for the violent mob storming the Capitol.” He went from “Republicans will never back down” to “can we please have unity” whilst, at the same time, perpetuating the lie which caused the biggest division that Trump has managed in four years of trying to divide America - divisions that every one of the Republicans now calling for unity supported wholeheartedly. I can only suppose - as their other god is power - that they’re hoping that “unity” means no investigation which might uncover their role in the disgraceful scenes we watched on January 6th which might cost them their grasp on power. But how about those companies and corporations still advertising on shows like Hannity’s, Ingraham’s Carlson’s, Pirro’s, Dodd’s, Bartiromo’s etc? They are still perpetuating the same lies. They are still calling for votes from predominantly black communities be thrown out. They are still lying to their viewers that Trump won and the election was stolen from him. They are still stoking the unpatriotic and racist division which has cut the purse strings from many of the Republican guests they have on their shows. So isn’t it time the companies advertising on their shows decide what message they want to be associate with? The Murdoch’s love the money rolling in - I suspect there may be a change in the narrative if they saw that drying up too. But at least we will know what companies who decide to continue running their ads on these shows advocating the overturn of our democracy and trashing our Constitution - except the second amendment which they like - really believe and can make our own decision as to whether we cut our own purse strings. They might also have a change of perspective if their profits start slumping.

  • ISLAM SHOWED THE WORLD NOTHING IS BLACK OR WHITE. BLACK LIVES MATTER GEORGE FLOYD'S MURDER Prophet Muhammad(pbuh)said: There is no superiority for the white over the black, nor is the black superior over the white." In Islam human life is sacred and inviolable. Every person has the right to protection his life. Every effort is must to protect it. In particular no one shall be exposed to injury or death. Right to protection against abuse of power. Every person has the right to protection against harassment by official agencies. Right to Protection against Torture: No person shall be subjected to torture in mind or body, or degraded or threatened with injury or forcibly made to confess to the commission of a crime. We still have so much to learn from this 1,450 year-old cry and we are so much in need of this message of prophet Mohammad(pbuh) to soothe and heal our broken times where we continue to struggle with almost identical issues in our global human community.

  • As the Captain leaves the ship ahead of time, after Ice Berg Incident, the rats of corporate america who ate the buffet on the cruise take the lifeboats and cut the ties leaving us to sink with the ship. Always remember those rats. They still are only rats when they fund democratic candidates.It's more like cancer eating us up.

  • I'll never vote Republican! I dont think we can trust what they say. Especially since they continue to back a liar and lie to us right now!

  • Stupid ego and lies started it all. This is the only thing trump cares about. Shame on him. For all his dirty lies.

  • Their shites is up the creeck .

  • There may yet be nasty surprises before Joe Biden can be sworn in. The swearing in may be disrupted. It is surrounded by doubts that the handover govt. to in coming presdent will be smooth!, if not uneventful.

  • WHAT corporations! So we don't support them?

  • I wish twitter did not have a double standard like when March 2017 (1 year and 2 months after the President won the election) Nancy Pelosi posted, "Our election was hijacked. There is no question. Congress has a duty to #ProtectourDemocracy..[]" She and twitter needs to uphold her very own standards and the true the right to democracy. Stop the use abuse of power acting like an illegal dictator bully. According to her standards, she incited uprising, hate, and division for years* . Stop trying to silence an opponent they were elected to their position. Attempting to dismiss their jobs that did what she did for many years but with much more hatred and aggressiveness.

    • @Tyrone Valdéz-Krüger I condemn the capitol violence and deaths along with ALL violence and criminal lawlessness. Anyone that is a part of the solution condemns ALL violence. Nancy did say on video in a press conference (in disagreement with a policy) "I just don’t even know why there aren’t uprisings all over the country and maybe there will be when people realize that this is a policy that they defend, It’s a horrible thing, and I don’t see any prospect for legislation here.” Merriam-Webster defines “uprising” as “a usually localized act of popular violence in defiance usually of an established government.” So, here we have Nancy Pelosi, then the minority leader in the House of Representatives, now the speaker of the House, at the very least condoning, if not actually calling for a violent insurrection against the government in response to a policy-a policy that actually began under the Obama-Biden administration." pjmedia.com Matt Margolis 1/07/21 7:07 et, retrieved 1/17/21 1:15 a.m. est

    • I'd be more concerned about the state of the Republican Party and its supporters as it turned into a cult. In a cult it sometimes happens that you lose track and accuse others of being aggressive and spreading hate while believing the cult leader every nonsense. I'm not a Democrat but I'm sure Pelosi never incited to storm Capitol Hill.

  • Isn't corporations giving money to politicians like the mafia collecting their "safety" donations? If corporations paid this politician money as a tax, it would help the country more. The politician is just helping himself really.

  • There has to be a fight for the GOP to find its soul. Those that have no stomach for it should leave the room. Although infighting is not welcomed, there is no way to avoid it now. The die is cast -- and the opportunity is fleeting.

  • Well trump did vow to drain the swamp!!! Considering all the corporate donors fleeing the Republican Party, I’d say he actually came thru on that promise.
