If the American Legislative Exchange Council has stayed true to genuine free-market policies, this would never have happened:
“Historically, we found value in working with ALEC and its legislative members on issues related to tax, commerce, and economic development,” said Maggie Sans, a Wal-Mart vice president, in a letter to ALEC.
“Previously, we expressed our concerns about ALEC’s decision to weigh in on issues that stray from its core mission ’to advance the Jeffersonian principles of free markets,’” Sans said. “We feel that the divide between these activities and our purpose as a business has become too wide. To that end, we are suspending our membership in ALEC.”
