"What brought me out today was the fact I’m just kind of upset about this economic situation and these enormous corporations aren’t paying their fair share we have really no social safety net," said a recent 27-year-old college graduate from northern Virginia, who identified himself only as James. "I went to a public university and still got gouged on tuition. It would be nice to see a little bit more funding for social programs and education…rather than it getting thrower away on tax loopholes. I would like to see some changes. Hopefully everyone coming today will make a difference. We will see."
