From an Occupy Chicago press release this morning:

“Occupy Chicago is a social movement protesting against economic inequality and representing the poorest 99 percent of Americans, who are ignored by government.”

The poorest 99 percent.

American taxpayers in the top one percent gross at least $380,000 a year. The cutoff for the top five percent is $160,000; for the top ten percent, $114,000.
