Facebook founder to meet with top Republicans

Facebook founder to meet with top Republicans

Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg is scheduled to meet with top Republican lawmakers next week to discuss a number of policy issues.

From Bloomberg News:

Facebook Inc. (FB) founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who has been pushing for a revision of U.S. immigration law, plans to meet with the top four Republicans in the House next week in Washington.

The meeting, scheduled for Sept. 19, will include House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio, Majority Leader Eric Cantor of Virginia, Whip Kevin McCarthy and Cathy McMorris Rodgers of Washington, the head of the Republican conference, according to two leadership aides who weren’t authorized to speak publicly.

Topics of discussion will include a range of issues such as Internet privacy, the economy, a revision of the tax system and changes to immigration law, according to one of the aides.

I can’t imagine the fringe left is going to allow Zuckerberg and Republicans to meet without some sort of noise, if the Facebook founder’s previous fundraiser for Republican NJ Governor Chris Christie is any indicator.  Professional protest racket CREDO Mobile got in on that act, encouraging progressive activists to pressure Zuckerberg to “Unfriend the anti-woman Republican Governor Chris Christie and match the money raised at your Palo Alto fundraiser dollar-for-dollar with a contribution for Planned Parenthood.”  Its petition (now deleted) also read:

No doubt, Zuckerberg is hoping to recruit other Silicon Valley millionaires, including some fellow Facebook executives, to join him in giving Christie a boost as he ponders a 2016 presidential run. But we need to make sure Zuckerberg and his wealthy friends know that by supporting Gov. Christie they are supporting the Republican War on Women and specifically helping to attack Planned Parenthood.

Zuckerberg has supported both sides of the political spectrum in the past.  He also attended a dinner for Obama in 2011.  But that hasn’t stopped the left from speculating if the Facebook founder is a “secret Republican.”

It will be interesting to see how next week’s meeting between Zuckerberg and Republican lawmakers goes.  And whether or not it happens without any drama.

Mark Zuckerberg must have gotten the $10Million dollar donation reward from the kickstarter campaign to kickstart WWIII:

What use is billions of dollars if you can’t play both sides to your gain

What I find equally hilarious is that Progressives in Palo Alto seem to think that Chris Christie has a chance at the GOP nomination.

Why is that so difficult to believe? Mitt Romney was nominated.

When you lost Mark Zuckerberg…

I’d take Rand Paul over Christie for 2016 and there are a lot of things that I disagree with Paul over. Just saying.

Zuckerberg is one source of the big money behind amnesty and the new 2013 immigration reform push in congress.

“Facebook founder to meet with top Republicans”…why doesn’t he want to meet with Americans instead

What kind of Republicans?

I am disappointed, of course, that our Republican Ruling Class would choose to meet first with a 29-year-old who has been shaving for less time than I have been collecting Social Security – before hearing my agenda for America.
