It pays to be a member of the US corporatocracy

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.

Did Carrier Fleece Both Trump & America?

Donald Trump took a victory lap in Indianapolis yesterday afternoon, where he and Vice President elect Mike Pence officially announced a deal to keep 800 Carrier jobs in Indiana.

That's 200 fewer jobs than the 1,000 jobs that Trump initially said the deal would save, but that's kind of besides the point.
