i recently read an article by The Economist: http://www.economist.com/blogs/democracyinamerica/2011/10/occupy-wall-street-2?fsrc=scn/tw/te/bl/letrahisondescpas
"Compensation should be limited by law in all publicly held companies... The highest annual compensation, including wages, fees, benefits and stock options, for employees, directors, consultants and consulting firms should be limited to the higher of 100 times the annual compensation of that company's lowest paid full time employee (after one year of employment) or 50 times the median (not average) annual compensation of all its employees... If current overpaid CEOs refuse these limitations, they can form their own private companies and pay themselves without restrictions." PERFECT.
"The sheet also called for several additional tax brackets at income levels starting above $750,000, and for allowing Medicare to negotiate lower drug prices with pharmaceutical companies."
Another VERY important one i read today was a tax on financial transactions that can give FREE PUBLIC EDUCATION. THIS is my favorite/most important one of all. you can watch here:
You mix these demands, with solutions of WOLD-PAC.COM, with solutions people are coming up with at the protests, send this to Washington you will get answers. Investigation of the financial crisis, tax loop-holes eliminated, fair-share tax payments, either end the fed, or get rid of our fiat currency that is the ROOT CAUSE for ALL our financial problems, break up the banks, repeal the Gramm–Leach–Bliley_Act, repeal Dodd-Frank bill, and reinstate permanent REASONABLE regulations- ETC. THIS is what you need.
So OWS, anyone, if you read this, you guys NEED to start compiling a list of REASONABLE statutes/amendments you want- AND FAST. When the winter comes your protests will die down, not only that, Bloomberg will start to try to disperse you. Start taking action!
Please forward this, spread the word. -Mike Bauer
