Instead Senator Wicker and the local newspapers brag on how we make ALEC's top 10 list and are remorseful that we only made it to number #13 this year because North Carolina and Tennessee legislators outdid us on deregulating the stuff ALEC wants deregulated and the other things on ALEC's give us this and we will help get you elected so you can list. ALEC is the AMERICAN LEGISLATIIVE EXCHANGE COUNCIL that exchanges campaign money for legislative favors and policy changes that favor it's wealthy members and undermines the voice and interest of Americans that are not among their members..
