83. They became an effective force in politics because they were BACKED by corporate DOLLARS.
The Kochs provided busses and cash and many major media outlets (predominantly Faux, CNBC and CNN) salivated over their Reaganomic small gubmint message because they were both on the same page. Tea Party pols and backers like Michele Bachmann and Dick Armey got unfettered widespread coverage and publicity for their rallies.

You honestly think corporations will be privvy to a movement that highlights their very blatant corruption and unfairness as the source of pretty much all economic problems we face today?

You think millionaire politicians from either party who sip Supply-Side Punch like champagne support the 99%?

If decorum permitted it, they'd be right alongside Rudy 9iu11iani yelling "Occupy a JOB, ya bum!"
