    The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is a heavy hitter in Washington. It was the second largest spender of anonymous outside money—or “dark money”—in the 2016 federal elections, second only to the National Rifle Association. And, in addition to all that spending directed at Congress and the White House, it wields the largest lobbying force on Capitol Hill. Last year, the Chamber dropped over $100 million on lobbying, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.read more...
