Occupiers To Meet With House Democrats To Discuss Legislative Agenda
But remember, this movement is totally non-partisan and stuff. Which is a claim that’s about as believable as the one where they’re non-violent.
(Roll Call) — An Occupy Wall Street group will take to the House later this week, only this time the meeting is a planned occasion with the Congressional Progressive Caucus.
Ten organizers from New York’s OWS group will speak to the caucus about their legislative priorities, according to an email sent to Members and obtained by Roll Call.
“This is the very first meeting of national occupy organizers and members to discuss specific legislation in the country,” the email to Members states.
An aide with knowledge of the meeting said the protesters “are uniquely concerned with getting money out of politics and with a jobs agenda.” The aide also said OWS representatives “may be reaching out to other caucuses both Republican and Democrat in the future.”
Which part of the occupier platform will Democrats tackle first? Universal debt forgiveness? A minimum wage at $20/hour? Free college? A guaranteed income regardless of work status?
Meanwhile, the occupiers are furthering their war on the 1 percent by blockading Walmart and blocking the flow of shipping at west cost ports. Because nothing sticks it to the man like driving up prices and blocking working Americans from doing their jobs.Tags: Asshats, democrats, occupy wall street
