Lobbyists, Guns and Money

Paul Krugman puts the spotlight on ALEC, the conservative corporate-backed legislative organization, and its role in a host of America's most destructive trends. These include the Stand Your Ground law in Florida (backed by the NRA, that resulted in the death of Trayvon Martin), union-busting, tax breaks for the one percent, environmental degradation, and the privatization war to capture public sector revenue and jobs for the crony capitalists who are destroying the country. We've got to call out Coca-Cola, ATT and others who play nice to the public while orchestrating systematic exploitation of the people's rights and interests.
