Yall Politics | Lt. Gov Tate Reeves speaks to ALEC in Chicago after being introduced by Steve Seale

Mississippi is open for business and seeing success in attracting more jobs, Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves told a crowd of legislators from around the country at the 40th Annual Meeting of the American Legislative Exchange Council.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

How tight is the Charter School Movement tied to ALEC? Here is one example. How many "small" businesses need $150 million worth of inventory tax breaks? Bye the way....tries to find Mr. Bill Minor's article about ALEC and charter schools. It is very hard to do.

 

Does anyone remember voting to allow ALEC or other groups like them to have such a large influence in America's policy making (or maybe policy unmaking). Did we vote to deliver their dream to make government's reach small, take the citizen input out and make ALEC's reach and power and input large enough to eat up State and National policy, and local public schools with local elected control replacing that system with Governor Appointees to charter school boards?


Did we elect people at the State and National level that are willing to give their own and our power as citizens over to corporate interest lock, stock and barrel?
