    They held a “We’re for Business” Luncheon? That’s funny. They Asheville Chamber of Commerce is a member of the US Chamber of Commerce, which works hard to send US jobs overseas. They are anti-American, and anyone who cares about American jobs should ask the Asheville Chamber of Commerce to sever their relationship with the US Chamber of Commerce. Here’s some info on the subject:
