Small’ NFIB Gets GOP Funders’ Big Bucks
The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB)
as a “non-profit, non-partisan organization” that is “the leading small business association representing small and independent business.”
For a business group so focused on “small” it says it twice, the NFIB reportedly gets a lot of its funding from the biggest names in Republican politics, including Karl Rove and the Koch brothers. As for the “independent” part, the NFIB’s political and legislative agendas at both the national and Washington state levels align closely with the Republican Party and big—not small—corporate interests.
