The New Lobbyist Began At Sen. Mitch McConnell’s Office….

…. and this should be spread to ALL of the Congressional offices in D.C. and to their home-state offices also. Occupy the offices of both the Republicans and the Democrats as both parties are responsible for the current economic mess in America.

Protesters occupy Sen. Mitch McConnell’s office

How long before Mitch starts walking around with a tear gas mask? lol

About 20 unemployed and underemployed D.C. residents occupied the office of Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell (KY) on Thursday, pledging to remain until the senator met with them about the Rebuild America Act.

An organizer for the group Our D.C., James Adams, told Raw Story that they had entered McConnell’s office around 10:30 am and vowed not to leave until they meet with him.

Legislative aides offered to meet with the protesters, but the group has made it clear they only wanted to meet with the senator face-to-face.

“We’re here until we meet with him,” Adams said. “The people here have suffered unbelievable hardship because they haven’t been able to find work and they believe that Senator McConnell needs to hear their story, needs to understand the pain… folks are angry and tired and they feel like he needs to hear them.”

These brave protesters are the NEW LOBBYISTS!!

I hope we get a OWS group outside all of the congresscritters offices!

Occupy the Filibusters!!
