The recent rejection of the payroll tax cuts/unemployment benefits by the House. And the attempts to tie it to the firing of government workers, Oil Industry Pipeline projects, cuts to health care and financial regulations funding, and other pet initiatives. They said we have no message or focus. Let’s give them one. Let’s come down hard on this one! We need to act on this one.

What can we do to immediately establish leadership on this issue? Like 1994, this might be the moment when OWS shows them why we are here and what we’ve been trying to tell everyone.

Well the weather outside in the Capitol is not inviting. But the media is camped out on this issue. Congressmen that have gone home for Christmas and may loose some sleep if this becomes a sounding board for OWS.
