Forum Post: Let's start Occupy Congress Movement

I really wish this movement would include an OCCUPY CONGRESS. I know greed is at the root, but Congress is, in so many ways, the real problem. The laws they create are protecting the ultra rich.
The special interest (lobbiest) are controlling them. They will not do what's right. It's as if we need an OCCUPY Congress revolution. Stir things up. After all, it's the people's government, not congress' or the ultra rich.

There are 184 CURRENT members of Congress who, in 1999, voted to repeal Glass-Steagall. None of them should be in the government in any capacity.

Here is a compilation of the current members of Congress who caused the financial collapse of the United States of America.

Why you greedy capitalist!

It's hard working, responsible people like you that are supporting the continual innovation and entrepreneurship that's oppressing the poor.
