Occupy Wall Street March To D.C. Enters Md.

HAVRE DE GRACE, Md. (AP) — The Occupy Wall Street protesters on a two-week, 240-mile march from New York to Washington have made their way into Maryland.

Organizer Kelley Brannon says the marchers started crossed the Delaware-Maryland border Thursday. They intend to spend the night in Havre de Grace and follow U.S. Route 40 all the way to Baltimore.

The group of a few dozen people hopes to reach Washington by Nov. 23 — the deadline for a congressional committee to decide whether to keep President Barack Obama’s extension of Bush-era tax cuts. Protesters say the cuts benefit only rich Americans.

    I’m 100% in support of the protesters. Without the Civil Rights marches look where we would be today. I’m hoping the protests will force the rich to do more for the poor people of this country. Some have so much while the rest of us have nothing. No matter how hard the poor work we can’t get ahead. My baby daddy works two jobs and still can’t afford the nicer things in life.

    IF PENSIONS COST MORE THEN 401’S WHY DO YOU INVEST LESS IN A 401 AND PROMISED MORE . A PENSION WAS A SURE THING, A 401V IS A GAMBLE. YOU LET WALL STREET INVEST YOUR HARD MONEY, ME I DO NOT THINK SO

    WALL ST WAS ALWAYS A RISK. PENSION WAS EASY AND WORKED.

    Wall st are abunch of greedy pricks that create nothing but move paper around & pay themselves handsomely for doing so. They then move down to Washington & take comfortable cabinet jobs such as Treasury secretary.
