WASHINGTON — House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi says she agrees with protesters from Wall Street to Washington who are saying that most of the country isn't getting a fair shake from the financial and political establishments.

Republicans are criticizing the protesters' message as divisive.

Asked to respond, the California Democrat said on ABC's "This Week" that the GOP didn't object to the tea party's in-your-face protests against members of Congress in last year's elections.

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor said last week that he was concerned about the "growing mobs" and criticized those who support them. He said condoning the demonstrations amounted to supporting the "pitting of Americans against Americans."

The loosely affiliated movement amassed on Wall Street and in Washington in recent weeks is protesting the power of the financial and political sectors.
