"The Occupy Wall Street crowd has a few things in common with the Tea Partiers. Both would sign onto the slogan, 'The banks got bailed out, I got sold out!' Both oppose 'fat cats,' though for different reasons. Occupiers tend to be anti-capitalist, believing that bank profits reflect the exploitation of the people. Tea Partiers favor free enterprise but focus on how too often some businesses rely on politics rather than markets." (10/12/11)
