This site says it all.

If you are wondering why the American Chemical Society is fighting open access, the answer is simple … ACS management receives bonuses that are tied to the revenues generated from ACS publications. They are also paid in part with money collected from membership dues (yes, if you are a member of the ACS you pay part of their salaries.)

So if you are upset about the state of affairs let the ACS know.
