ALEC Admits - Yeh, We F#cked UP - Big Time

We're Not going to Apologize for a damn thing.
Because we believe in everything we've done and will do to the American people and the people of the world.

But we have to do something, because

(Washington, D.C.) April 17, 2012—David Frizzell, Indiana State Representative and 2012 National Chairman of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), issued the following statement today on behalf of ALEC’s Legislative Board of Directors:
“Today we are redoubling our efforts on the economic front, a priority that has been the hallmark of our organization for decades. Fostering the exchange of pro-growth, solutions-oriented ideas is precisely why ALEC exists.

“To that end, our legislative board last week unanimously agreed to further our work on policies that will help spur innovation and competitiveness across the country.

“We are refocusing our commitment to free-market, limited government and pro-growth principles, and have made changes internally to reflect this renewed focus.

“We are eliminating the ALEC Public Safety and Elections task force that dealt with non-economic issues, and reinvesting these resources in the task forces that focus on the economy. The remaining budgetary and economic issues will be reassigned.

“While we recognize there are other critical, non-economic issues that are vitally important to millions of Americans, we believe we must concentrate on initiatives that spur competitiveness and innovation and put more Americans back to work.

“Our free-market, limited government, pro-growth policies are the reason ALEC enjoys the support of legislators on both sides of the aisle and in all 50 states. ALEC members are interested in solutions that put the American economy back on track. This is our mission, and it is what distinguishes us.”

Not admitting that they are sorry for privatizing prisons, voter ID, and all the other crap that came out of this task force.

Basically saying - 
We got caught - we better do something
   before we lose anymore corporate money!

Sorry, folks - I don't buy this
   cut off your nose to spite the face 
   type of crap.

ALEC members will still be destroying 
our democracy and 
representation of, by and for the people.
