Congressman Barney Frank To OWS: Vote!

On her MSNBC show Monday night, Rachel Maddow asked Rep. Barney Frank whether the ever-growing Occupy Wall Street movement has "energized Democrats at all."

The Frank said the protesters need to suggest legislative policies to address their grievances and show up at the ballot box the next time the opportunity arises.

The longtime critic of financial system deregulation says he is sympathetic to the movement but also says, "I'm unhappy when people [who] didn't vote last time blame me [congress] for the consequences of their not voting.”
