"Rep. Barney Frank is ratcheting up his longstanding push to reduce federal defense spending with a series of town hall events in his Massachusetts congressional district atarting this weekend. And he is encouraging Occupy Wall Street and its sibling movements around the country to get involved. 'Cutting military spending is really essential if we are going to accomplish some of the things the Occupy movement wants to do in terms of fairness,' Frank said in an interview Friday afternoon."
