Novelist Stephen King and his wife Tabitha have released a statement supporting Occupy Bangor, which is encamped in Maine, where the two reside. The statement blasts corporate greed and calls on working people in Maine and nationwide to take back the American Dream:

“It’s time for the wealthy to pay their fair share before the middle class becomes the forgotten class. And it’s time for the banks to give back what they were given. There are those in politics, particularly those on the conservative side, who can’t get enough of telling people that the wealthy one per cent must not be taxed because doing so kills jobs. The real job-killers are corporate greed and political expediency. It’s time for working people in Maine and all across the country to take back the American dream.”
