#OccupyCongress #J17 

Occupy Congress - January 17th - Morning of Day 1

Barely one-in-ten Americans are okay with Congress’ job, the lowest rating in the history of the CNN/ORC survey that released its findings Monday, a no-confidence vote apparent Tuesday as a huge crowd of Occupiers from across the nation have gathered for Occupy Congress, demonstrating in front of the nation’s Capitol Building in an all-day protest. There have been at least six arrests at the protest, two for allegedly stepping on the sidewalk as Occupy DC’s Ustream livestream reporting of the event has documented.

“Only 11 percent of Americans favor the current work by lawmakers in Washington,” reports CNN, as the news organization mulls over data of its latest poll in conjunction with ORC International, the results of which were released Monday.

This could change a lot.
Daniel Koekar says:


Whether Occupiers can actually gather such a large number of people remains to be seen, but their message is important. Congress simply isn’t representing the wishes of the American people, and this is a constant regardless of where anyone may fall on the political spectrum. Moving from Wall Street to Congress, a million members or not, this is an idea that most Americans should stand behind.



You gotta agree with him.


Go!!
