ALEC Economic Policy– leads to poverty

Economic policies of the American Legislative Exchange Council  – lead to increased poverty.

Another recap of the Iowa Policy Report – but these folks don’t hold back.  Finally - someone not using polite phrases when talking abou the horrendous policies of ALEC.
They call out the American Legislative Exchange Council for all the nastiness it really is!!

(my emphasis)
States that followed recommendations made by the conservative American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) were more likely to experience increased poverty rates and falling income

The Iowa Policy Project reviewed past state rankings and found that the better a state did on ALEC’s ranking in 2007, the bigger the increase in poverty and the bigger the decrease in median family income in subsequent years.

States that follow this path risk economic stagnation.

This is a reason why
ALEC members at the state and federal level
MUST NOT be elected or re-elected!!!!
