"The American Legislative Exchange Council, a nationwide bipartisan group of conservative
legislators." This explanation of ALEC was written in a paper; Privatizing Probation and Parole by Morgan O. Reynolds-written in 2000. Walker choose Wisconsin's security as the first to get rid of last year. All under the guise of saving the taxpayers money. It is costing Wisconsin double now... NO savings. But these private contracts create revenue for those individuals like Eric Prince. This term bipartisan is a word I wish President Obama would not use, and I wish he was not compliant to ushering in these Austerity bills... I realize Reagan is his conservative hero, but Reagan is an ALEC alumni... Obama's bipartisan extension in all things to Boehner ,another member of ALEC, is creating a shift of our country to private industries like black water with no bid contracts. Even more troubling is our shift to privatize congress via secret six member group. Privatizing is a tool used to create wealth for a few.... And it is the tip off that ALEC is involved...

There is a reason that the term bipartisan is causing us to wear thin? It is a term that is part and parcel of ALEC.

3. All My Life
and I'm pushing 60. :hide:

It's not like that for the Repiglickins, because the "blue dogs" will always vote with them when it matters. We used to call them "boll weevils".
