Liberal and conservative are just two more buzzwords, What really counts is how congress treats the people it is supposed to serve, not how they treat big businesses -- the people.
We the people in order to form a perfect union -- is how the Constitution reads --- not one word about Democrat or Republican parties, just we the people.
Businesses, large and small are the free economic expression of the activities of people acting as individuals in the creation & ownership of businesses , and employment with them. When government regulates the operation of businesses it regulates the free economic activity of the people. That regulation may be necessary and beneficial or it may be oppressive - to both businesses and the people who make them up.
You are atttempting here to make a misleading and meaningless distinction between "the people" and their free economic activity. In fact they are inseparable.
