  •  This is great..Reading the article now.. (4+ / 0-)

    I'm so glad Color of Change has had success in getting about 8 corporations to withdraw. I don't know how many it will take to have a big financial impact...

    Half of corporations pay no income tax now. And more tax breaks aren't going to create jobs. They aren't going to be satisfied with anything but zero tax...

    I'd been wondering why these companies were cutting ties with ALEC. Corporations don't do something because its the right thing to do. They do something only if they think its in their self-interest (profit). These companies are now thinking helping fund ALEC isn't worth the potential lost sales from adverse publicity?  

    At this point, far more people have now been arrested for protesting Wall Street's mortgage fraud crimes than have been for committing and presiding over them.
