Gov. Pat McCrory picks so many winners he should play the ponies.

McCrory named as his chief lobbyist Fred Steen II, a state chairman and board member of ALEC, a rightwing organization funded in part by the Charles Koch Foundation.

All medicare/Medicaid/SocialSecurity – privatized
No cap gains tax
No inheritance tax
Tell me – what else do you think an Article V could do?

ALEC pushing right wing agenda on guns, vote suppression, and more. Undoubtedly a major enemy of the 99%.

Excellent Post.
