From AMERICAblog in the USA:
#OccupyWallStreet is mainstream

Demanding the end of an unfunded tax cut for the rich when there is concern about the deficit is a mainstream position. Demanding that the government out the interests of ordinary people ahead of Wall Street bankers is a mainstream position.
Until #OccupyWallStreet the idea of increasing taxes for the rich was not even open for discussion. The GOP had said that they would not allow any tax to rise under any circumstance, they also said that the biggest problem facing the country right now was the deficit. So as far as the establishment media was concerned the only possible option that could be considered was which entitlements to cut.
I don’t want to let the GOP steal my pension to give the Koch brothers another tax cut.
Less than a month ago the establishment media was telling us that cuts in Social Security and the end of Medicare for the under 50s was a foregone conclusion. That story line seems to have been completely cut.
