U.S. Chamber of Commerce is a Hypocrite

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce files more than two lawsuits a week on average, and its President, Tom Donohue, calls litigation "one of our most powerful tools for making sure that federal agencies follow the law and are held accountable."  Hypocritically, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce spends millions of dollars to prevent American citizens from holding wrongdoers accountable in the courtroom.  The United States' civil justice system is a powerful tool for holding wrongdoers accountable, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce should not work to deprive Americans of this Constitutional right.  Every American should have full access to the civil justice system.
