Greed: We wonder why they protest?

Why are people protesting Wall Street? Corporate greed. The Institute for Policy Studies published a damning report chronicling the extent of greed. It noted: • Twenty-five major U.S. corporations paid their CEOs more than they paid the federal government in taxes. As the divide grows between the haves and the have nots… the American people are sick of greed and the damage it has reaped on the nation.

Protests that started on Wall Street three weeks ago has spread to dozens of cities across the country, as protesters rally against corporate greed, tax breaks for the top 1%, unemployment and the role of financial institutions in the current economic crisis.

The Republicans whine “class warfare” as they wage warfare on the working middle class. They have shown us their extreme agenda and their intent to dismantle Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Organized Labor, Voting Rights, Injury Compensation, Unemployment Compensation, Public Education, School Lunches and all social programs designed to strengthen the working middle class while they fight to continue tax breaks for millionaires and billionaires and corporate welfare.

It is interesting that Republicans say we can’t afford Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Unemployment Compensation, Food Stamps, School Lunches and Public Education but we can afford corporate welfare and tax breaks for the top 1%. The Republicans are correct; there is class warfare, and they are waging it against the middle class.
