Unfortunately, OWS does not officially support this or the so-called Congressional Progressive Caucus. Many viewed their creation of Restore the American Dream as political manipulation. This critique was further supported when the CPC supported the National Defense Authorization Act.

Now they re-introduced the RAD and added "for the 99%" after ten mysterious individuals who were supposedly from the OWS met with them. They seem to be using the 99% for their own agenda and there is a possibility that this is a corporate smoke-and-mirrors tactic. http://news.firedoglake.com/2011/12/13/congressional-progressive-caucus-introduces-restore-the-american-dream-for-the-99-act/

Now, I am not saying that what they propose isn’t a good idea. Just that it needs to be introduced by someone a little more reliable like Ted Deutch or Bernie Sanders.
