The press is merely following the DNC’s instructions.
A Chicago-based “Occupy Wall Street” protestor is allegedly getting paid — more than many Americans with actual jobs — to protest corporate greed and the unemployment rate in the United States.
Business Insider has obtained a video interview of a seemingly well-informed Chicago protestor who mentions — almost in passing — that he gets paid $22 an hour plus overtime to participate in a Chicago offshoot of the “Occupy Wall Street” protests.
The man describes his protesting work as a “full time gig” and added that an unnamed benefactor, who is presumably providing the salary, is “getting [his] money’s worth.”
An hourly wage of $22 per hour is three times the current minimum wage of $7.33.
It is unclear if the protestor is legitimate or if he is an actor hired to discredit the “Occupy Wall Street” movement. If he is an actor, he’s a good one — he seems well-versed on the legitimate grievances of the “Occupy” protestors, and doesn’t mention the renumeration until later in the interview. Watch the “Occupy Chicago” video after the jump:
The bill that never was a “jobs” bill. The Senate Dems knew exactly why Obama created it — to simply steal more money from the public. Another “stimulus” hold-up. The American taxpayer being rolled again and his wallet taken.
Even the AP has to lie. The Senate Dems would not pass another chapter in Obama monetary theft. But the spin is “blame it on the Repubs”....as if this “jobs bill” would have done anything, like the first ones.
I wonder if the DNC has asked Obama to resign yet?
Lets have some fun with math, shall we?
One-point-nine million jobs hang in the balance, $427 billion jobs bill and if it were passed, 1.9 million jobs immediately created.
My math says that is just a shade over $225,000 per job.
According to Obama and the Occupy Wall St loons, that is just on the cusp of being the evil rich, is it not?
So Obama is suggesting the creation of jobs which he will immediately try to tear down with his class warfare rhetoric! And at the same time, he will blame republicans for stopping him!
Associated Press usually prints Democrat National Committee press releases as “news.”
It is amazing that they get away with claiming that the democrat party does not control the Senate.
That AP headline was written weeks ago on White House stationary.
Fox News is not "fair and balanced". They clearly have collapsed as an alternative to the liberals. On their television they have obviously hired democrat after democrat talking head. And the moron who they use as their "white house correspondent" routinely claims "the majority of economists unanimously agree with the President's jobs bill...."
