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.

We Are All Pharma-Bro Suckers

"Pharma Bro" Martin Shkreli became one of the most notorious people in America for hiking the price of a rarely used life-saving drug by 4,000 percent in September of 2015.

And nearly a year later, dozens of reports are now coming out about how Mylan Pharmaceuticals hiked the price of the very common life-saving EpiPen by over 450% since Mylan bought EpiPen in 2007.
