Can you occupy a press conference?

Tomorrow, Senator Kay Hagan will appear with some corporate titans to explain her destructive plan to give giant multi-national corporations yet another tax cut. Wish she were holding it somewhere in which she’d have to look at and speak to the 99%.

This from the Senator’s office:

“October 6, 2011
