Thanks for the information. I checked out the senators and representatives that are associated with ALEC, and I was shocked! Everyone should look up their state and learn just who their elected officials are that are paid by the Koch brothers to 'stick it to the middle class and the poor'.
Thanks again.

A quick check of the Dump ALEC petition page on the PCCC web site showed that 23 corporations or foundations had dumped ALEC, and that 45 Democratic office holders had.

Can Democrats Set Out a New Path?

Democrats must embrace a pro-government platform, not run away from it.

Those were the sentiments of Senator Chuck Schumer today, in a speech given at the National Press Club. Talking about the reasons for Democrats’ losses on Election Day, Schumer said that those losses were proof that the American people and middle-class want a government that will work more effectively for them.
