Republican presidential nominee Herman Cain denounced the protesters as "jealous" and playing the "victim card" in appearances Sunday. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) called the protests "mobs," and Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said he worried that the movement could soon turn violent.
But Democrats were more sympathetic. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee sent out a fundraising email Monday asking supporters to sign a petition in support of the protesters. President Obama said during a news conference last week that the movement reflected "broad-based frustration about how our financial system works."
