CEO, Bank of America
aka, the Enemy

The Bank of America CEO attracted the ire of the crowds at Zuccotti Park after defending his bank’s decision to charge a $5 fee to customers who make purchases on their debit cards, by saying, “they'll understand what we're doing—understand we have a right to make a profit." He added that the Dodd-Frank Act would cost his bank “billions.” The comments were essentially a reference to President Obama’s earlier comments that banks do not have “an inherent right” to a “certain amount of profit.” Outraged activists would use the new fee as a rallying cry for the Occupy Wall Street movement.
