It pays to be a member of the US corporatocracy

2 posts / 0 new

The group Common Cause is out with a full list of corporate members belonging to the American Legislative Exchange Council – known as ALEC.

It turns out, the nation’s four largest oil companies – Shell, BP, Chevron, and ExxonMobil – are all members of ALEC – and sit on ALEC taskforces to write legislation to benefit their own interests – like eliminating EPA regulations and giving away public lands for drilling and fracking. These four oil corporations raked in a combined $30 billion in profits in just the first three months of this year.

If corporations like ExxonMobile are writing our laws – and not our elected representatives – then you can kiss American democracy as we know it – goodbye.

Bernie Sanders Could be the Next FDR

Tuesday night, I appeared on the Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell to talk about Elizabeth Warren, the rise of progressives within the Democratic Party, and what this means for Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign.

At one point in our discussion, the conversation turned to whether Bernie represents the closest thing to an Elizabeth Warren candidacy.
