And when you see people out there finally talking about what happened to the country.
You know we thought in a progressive fairly sort in a new deal we thought in the sixties and we've -- -- to some extent in the Tea Party and now we're seeing -- here.
You know my crazy wonderful husband wrote a book twenty years ago which could provide a focus for -- people what He talked about what it was called promises to be.
And it was calling for exactly this kind of movement.
Saying that there are two pillars of our country democracy and capitalism but capitalism at the end into the creation and distribution of wealth but democracy make sure.

And He talked about breaking up the company's executive compensation linked to actual economic performance.
-- this I'm not invested profits and forcing.
Reduction in campaign spending balance budgets and incredible a lot of the stuff they're talking about now hedge funds reckless loans.
And just the need some tell you that the different that the been come in well they're inherent in capitalism which is fine.
Individuals that they increase wealth by contributing to the growth of the country it's -- for them to be rich.
So when you've got failed CEOs -- get a twenty million dollar parachute or reckless bankers not being has -- -- you've got a problem.
But we're don't bring major down narrower did it break out journal sixers head down and put our name -- down and -- -- provide them focused on -- -- be.

He was calling -- that they might this -- in 1992.
It was a time of recession is that there may be a temporary recovery but the problem of the middle class squeeze that's been going on for decades and that has to do with the financially institutions have overtaken democracy.
And you need both the calling for democratic capitalism so it's not just I hate all business you know.
I'm against the -- for class warfare is figuring out what structural changes they needed in the economy to make sure that it's benefiting the many rather than the U.
One of the one of the things -- Tea Party people had was.
-- -- they -- -- -- -- there were specific about what they were upset about a and they were providing more than 100 of them are not.
Specific remedies to solve -- problems -- IAB and her husband.
But I think that we may need to -- guy's name from -- moral -- -- or.
Aluminium from the old days that's -- -- -- Yeah just but they need somebody -- other -- -- they'd need much more focus.

Of lives are so called too big to fail company.
-- -- -- his -- pay for the all bailouts right don't provide any public money from private slobbering.
-- taxing hedge fund gamblers and change the way bankers do.
As you know that that I'm I'm telling you I I I should get -- -- that you the big promises it's because it's exactly along those lines and written twenty years ago.
And I think the problem for the occupied people as they're afraid that if they become specific.
They'll lose some people on the fringes who may not agree with it but that they've got to get specific.
They and they don't need twenty they don't need 59 point but it Romney has certainly you're right I promised -- -- -- I think you did well last night I think it well you know -- the the benefit of having 59 point.
