Occupy has changed the game…

I have personally been fighting to be heard by my country since September 11, 2001 when our home was attacked. Instead of joining hands in support we began pointing fingers at one another. I refuse to believe our nation will remain as divided as it has been in the past decade. It is time to move forward to get away from the pain of all of the lost September days. Our President has just presented the nation with a new direction and it is because we have all refused to be silenced about the type of country we seek. *Peace*

Today: President Barack H. Obama”Remember that in those years, in 2001 and 2003, Congress passed two of the most expensive tax cuts for the wealthy in history, and what did they get us?  The slowest job growth in half a century.  Massive deficits that have made it much harder to pay for the investments that built this country and provided the basic security that helped millions of Americans reach and stay in the middle class – things like education and infrastructure; science and technology; Medicare and Social Security.”
