Palin to RPOF: Occupy Wall Street doesn't get it



65859047.jpgSarah Palin, speaking to the RPOF in Orlando, accused the Wall Street protesters of reaching the wrong conclusions.

"They feel legitimate indignation about the Wall Street bailouts," she said of the protesters. "Financial institutions behaving recklessly and then we get stuck with the bill. And then three years later many of us are still quite ticked off about it all because we don't have assurance that those who caused the financial collapse in the first place, that they be held accountable, and that it won't happen again.

"They say, 'The Wall Street fat cats got a bailout. I want one, too.' And the correct answer is, no one should get a bailout," she said.
