Occupy Protesters Plan March From New York To D.C.

NEW YORK -- Occupy Wall Street is going on the road – a two-week walk to Washington.A small group of activists plans to leave Manhattan's Zuccotti Park at noon Wednesday. They hope to arrive Nov. 23, the deadline for a congressional committee to decide whether to keep President Barack Obama's extension of Bush-era tax cuts.

Senh: It doesn't look good. Barack Obama has already pulled the millionaires' tax on his jobs plan to get the Republicans to pass it. Let's see if the Occupy movement can make a difference.
