Sam Brownback answers to ALEC …. his bottom line. The United States of ALEC. http://www.democracynow.org/2012/9/27/the_united_states_of_alec_bill

ALEC Right Wing Party is posing as the republican party which is fraudulent representation of the GOP.

Rather than serve the public interest, ALEC champions the agenda of corporations which are willing to pay for access to legislators and the opportunity to write their very own legislation. It helps surrogates and lobbyists for corporations to draft and promote bills which do the following.

• gut environmental laws

• create a regressive tax system

• eliminate workers’ rights = lower wages

• undermine universal and affordable health care

• privatize public education

• chip away at voting rights.

You're right Richard we need the Progressives to keep the gates of all political and cultural affairs. Then that nasty Alec would be thwarted and all will be well in the land. I've an idea. Lets let Kathleen Sebelius run our nations health care system.
