ALEC members are dropping like flies

2 posts / 0 new

More than a dozen corporate members have dropped their membership since April – and now mostly Democratic state lawmakers are fleeing ALEC. Since last week – 28 legislators cancelled their ALEC memberships – including four Nebraska legislators just yesterday. One Nebraska State Senator – Heath Mello – commented on ALEC saying, “They’ve become very extreme on a lot of issues. I don’t want to be used as a political pawn.” “Very extreme” is an understatement.

ALEC is dismantling our democracy with Voter ID laws – poisoning our air and water with anti-EPA laws – and increasing murders around the country with Shoot First laws. Let’s keep up the pressure on Koch brother-funded corporatocracy.

Who Should an Economy Serve?

The top one percent own half of all the world's assets. In stark contrast, the bottom fifty percent of the world owns less than one percent. According to the 2014 Global Wealth Report from Credit Suisse, global inequality has surged since the 2008 financial collapse. The report explains that while global wealth has more than doubled since the year 2000, the vast majority of overall growth has gone to those who were already wealthy.
