Dear Editor: The recent state budget and right-to-work-for-less bill are direct attacks against the people of Wisconsin.

It's obvious that these actions are not based upon the needs and concerns of most Wisconsin citizens. Instead, they are taken from scripts crafted by the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), which is a national membership group that drafts and pushes model legislation that furthers their agenda.

Walker and his lackeys in the Legislature are following the orders of their big corporate bosses who fund ALEC's operations. It's very clear that they don't care about the damage they're doing to the people, wildlife, environment, economy and reputation of our state.

Walker's outrageous comment comparing protesters in Wisconsin to ISIS terrorists further shows his utter contempt and disregard for the people of his own state, no matter how he tried to spin his comment later.

It now seems to be a sad fact that, unless your name is ALEC, you no longer have a voice in Wisconsin.
