MORE RUBES SELF-IDENTIFY: Business’s Buyer’s Remorse: For cooperating with the White House, member companies of the Business Roundtable gets socked with higher taxes and more regulations.

Mr. Seidenberg, officially Verizon’s CEO, moonlights as chairman of the influential Business Roundtable, the “association of chief executive officers of leading U.S. companies.” That would be the same Business Roundtable that woke up this past month to discover the White House has been playing it for a patsy. It turns out that actively supporting a pro-tax, pro-regulation Democratic majority on issues like health care doesn’t really get you anything save more taxes and more regulation.

Do tell. Mr. Seidenberg, meet Mr. Quick.
