Why are the Wall Street Protesters upset?

They are:

  • Upset that 20% of the country's wealth has been destroyed and not a single person has been convicted, much less indicted.
  • Upset that Wall Street has iron control over the country’s economic policies and that both parties are wholly owned subsidiaries.
  • Upset that 24 million people cannot find a full time job, that 50 million cannot afford to see a doctor when they are sick, that 47 million need the government’s help to feed themselves. They are upset that 15 million families owe more on their home than it is worth. (Alan Grayson, Former Member of Congress.)
