On the progressive left, the newly-assembled Occupy movement is protesting the government policies of the last few years that favored and increased the wealth of the rich at the expense of war, inflation and declining middle and lower-class wealth. On the right, the Tea Party movement, adopted by the Republican Party, protests and and advocates policies of lower taxes, continued tax cuts for upper-middle class and wealth, and less government regulation on private enterprise.
