People are mad about the overspending. Parents don't want their children stuck with so much debt. The thing is that democrats have been on board with this for a long time now. The republicans waited until there was a democrat in office before deciding to come together and raise their voice.
Generally, I was glad to see people come together to protest. I like to see people get involved.
Personally, I felt it was disingenuous because the right waited until there was a democrat in office to do it, because their was no focus and because the main theme was to hate on Obama rather than to protest something specifically.
