The Occupy movement, with exciting street actions and activities in over 1,500 cities worldwide, has opened up a new opportunity in our nation's conversation on debt, crisis, and capitalism.
Meanwhile, time is running out for the so-called "Super Committee" to deliver its recommendations to cut over $1 trillion from federal spending over the next ten years. Very soon, they will finalize their report. With all eyes on the 99%, we have an opportunity to make the news again before it's too late.
