For the record, the origin of the 99% (and the 1%) is from an article published last spring in Vanity Fair by Nobel prize winning economist Joseph Stitlitz entitiled "Of the 1%, by the 1%, for the 1%". His explanation of the totally distorted distribution of wealth is readily understood and devastatingly pointed. When 1% of the citizens own 40% ot the total wealth and 25% of the total income, the mechanisms that support that are completely gamed against the middle and lower class. Read the article, then act out of knowledge rather than emotion.
Interesting that Obama is criticized for not getting immigration reform and the Dream Act accomplished. He vigorously supports both of these issues but the deadhead Congress will not move on it. If you want progress, vote out the deadheads, and there are a lot of them in each party.
