ALEC – the American Legislative Exchange Council – has a new report out written by Arthur B. Laffer, Stephen Moore and Jonathan Williams and unfortunately, it does not have good news for the citizens of New York. The 2015 economic outlook ranking is a forward-looking measure of how each state can expect to perform economically based on 15 policy areas that have proven, over time, to be the best determinants of economic success. New York ranks dead last.
We can change New York’s ranking by being more involved in the political process and taking this man’s lead. Thanks Mr. Mercaldo for publically stating, “The decision to change party affiliation has caused me no little anguish. Yet, it is imperative that that I embrace an organization whose principles demand policies that will protect and preserve our nation for future generations. We must be a nation governed by the Constitution, Bill of Rights and the rule of law. We must reject international law as a replacement of our own charter.” Welcome to the Conservative Party.
