Just like everything Walker has done are ALEC initiatives.
A defeating blow to Kasich is a defeating blow to the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC).
Ohio- The Business (ALEC) Friendly State;
Senate Bill 5 (on the ballot as Issue 2), strips collective bargaining rights from over 300,000 of public workers, including police officers, firefighters, nurses, and teachers. In addition to Issue 2, Kasich has moved to privatize state services and property, including the Ohio Turnpike, while at the same time cutting taxes for already profitable large businesses
This is ALEC - you can't get away from the fact that it is ALEC.
I am hoping and praying that we can hand ALEC a defeat on Tuesday in Ohio.
It would do my old heart good.
VOTE NO on Issue 2!
Thank you Ohio for everything you have done and are doing
- the gratitude of America goes out to you.
- Ohio will help show it is possible to take our democracy back.
Bless You!!! for your hard work and commitment.
UPDATE - 11/08/11
With elections tomorrow in Ohio that will determine the fate of the radical anti-union law known as SB-5 – Republican Governor John Kasich and his buddies are doing anything they can to stop the labor movement backlash – and stop repeal of his coveted law. So on Friday – Ohio Republicans shut down early voting to keep people away from the polls. The Ohio Secretary of State – Jon Husted – who also has ties to ALEC, the American Legislative Exchange Council – ordered the polling stations to be closed despite the fact that early voting in Ohio has always been available to the public in previous elections. But this election is different, thanks to an obscure new law – passed by Republicans in the state legislature – that conveniently took effect last week – and bars early voting three days before an election. Republicans believe the only way they can win an election is to prevent working people from voting in it.
Remember ALEC DOES NOT WANT YOU TO BE ABLE TO VOTE!
Please DO NOT EVER FORGET THIS
