Dear Representative Wasserman Schultz,
The Democratic party has held the White House since 2008 and had a Democratic majority in Congress for two years. During that time President Obama and the Democratic Party put the agenda of Wall Street and the Corporate 1% first, over the needs of 99% of the country. Your leadership failed us. You must do better in 2012.
We want to meet with you tomorrow afternoon at the Occupy Caucus Headquarters at 504 E. Locust. Please contact Stephen Toothman at 515-480-5682 by 6pm tonight with your reply.
For a more just and democratic society,
Occupy Des Moines and allied Occupiers
“The problems this country faces – unemployment, housing crisis, a revenue crisis, not taxing Wall Street and millionaires and billionaires enough ot pay for the social programs this country needs, a military empire overextended overseas – those are bipartisan problems,” Goodner said. “That’s a failure of leadership from both political parties.”
