If you had the slightest bit of doubt the Democrats weren’t in full support of the Occupy Wall Street thugs, that should be erased by this petition being circulated by the Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee. We got wind of this via an email from the DCCC’s aptly named Robby Mook (if you’re unsure what a mook is, look here). Here’s the text of the petition:
Protestors are assembling in New York and around the country to let billionaires, big oil and big bankers know that we’re not going to let the richest 1% force draconian economic policies and massive cuts to crucial programs on Main Street Americans.
Out-of-touch Republican Majority Leader Eric Cantor said he is “increasingly concerned by the growing mobs.” Mobs? That must be what Republicans refer to as the middle class, or maybe the millions of unemployed Americans across the country.
As Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi told reporters, “The message of the American people is that no longer will the recklessness of some on Wall Street cause massive joblessness on Main Street…”
Send a message straight to Eric Cantor, Speaker Boehner, and the rest of reckless Republican leadership in Congress:
Sign our petition right now and help us reach 100,000 strong standing with Occupy Wall Street protestors across the country!
Make a differnence and get paid! Woo-hoo!
The NYC Comptroller John Liu was endorsed by the WFP, and his supporters are now paying people to protest in his own city.
