Jobless Protesters Occupy Mitch McConnell's Office As Congress Dithers On Jobs

Post by Guest on Thu Nov 03, 2011 5:51 pm

Roughly 30 jobless protesters from D.C. neighborhoods have occupied Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's office in the Russell Senate Office Building. They said they want to talk to him about jobs.

But McConnell was busy at the Capitol Building, where he led Republicans in blocking a $60 billion infrastructure bill. The protesters said they supported the measure.

McConnell's legislative director offered to sit down with the group, but they declined, saying they'd rather wait for the senator himself. So they sat in his office, taking up every chair and lots of floor space while McConnell's staff went about its business. A Capitol Police officer scoped the situation and said her heart went out to them for losing their jobs.

The protesters, most of whom said they lived in the poorest part of Southeast D.C., had no affiliation with the Occupy Wall Street movement.

This is good. Critics of the OWS movement keep saying, "They should be protesting in Washington, not on Wall Street.".

Even though these people say they have no affiliation with OWS, their frustration and anger over lack of jobs and economic inequality is in line with those of the OWS movement. These kinds of events in Washington will only grow in number and frequency over the next several months.

Wonder if Michie boy ever made it back to his office, or if he was whisked away by his security team for his own protection?

Part of governing includes listening to all the people. I have a real problem with elected officials who will not listen to people, who they have made disparaging remarks about, time after time after time.

Take an hour, sit down and listen to them. Even if you make up your mind ahead of time to discredit them, show them the courtesy of listening. If you don't, then he needs to keep his mouth shut on the subject of unemployment, jobs and UC. JMHO
