Angel acknowledged the [debate] question [about ALEC] was likely prompted by her chair role but she said of Schlicher's contentions [that ALEC plain sucks], "This is a bunch of hooey." As chair, she said, she passed ALEC recommendations to the caucuses of both political parties, not just her own Republicans.Well, except that Democrats don't want anything to do with those recommendations. And in fact:
There are currently 14 Republican legislators in Washington who belong to ALEC, and most are considered among the most conservative lawmakers.And of course, there's Obamacare, obviously:
Angel co-sponsored a measure that would have barred the state from spending any money on planning or implementing Obamacare.That's not a record that Angel is happy to defend. So she's running from the press, afraid to alienate district voters with her agenda.
So chip in a few bucks and help our Washington friends keep this ALEC toady out of the Senate, and give Democrats a better chance to take the Washington Senate back from its Lieberdem-Republican majority.
