What is necessary right now is to do what was done in the “Wizard of Oz” movie: Pull back the curtain and expose for all citizens to see that ALEC is the “wizard” behind the major legislative proposals of Walker and the current crop of Wisconsin Republican legislators. Wisconsin voters need to see that their state is not just “open for business” as Walker repeatedly claims, but rather that Wisconsin has been “bought by big business.”
The Cap Times in Madison Wisconsin has had a plethora of great articles about the Wisconsin situation and the influence of ALEC. Most of them have been very well written and have accurately exposed ALEC for the part that it is playing in the state - rather then speculating.
I republish this article here because
while it is written for the Wisconsin audience -
it has implications for the entire United States.
