We are the 99 percent. We are getting kicked out of our homes. We are forced to choose between groceries and rent. We are denied quality medical care. We are suffering from environmental pollution. We are working long hours for little pay and no rights, if we're working at all. We are getting nothing while the other 1 percent is getting everything. We are the 99 percent.

I’m 29 years old and between my husband and myself we have $200,000 in student loan debt that we will never be able to pay off. I have a chronic pain disease and should be on disability but we can’t afford it. I’m grateful to have a job but I’m definitely under employed. They lied when they said education will keep you from debt. :( We are the 99%! Occupywallst.org 
Scared, worried and living one day at a time.
___________
We weren’t irresponsible. We were trying to do what was right and not be a burden on our families. Now we’re in debt, have crunched credit and we just found out that if we ever want to have kids we’re going to need to have medical help that we simply cannot afford. I go to bed every night with a broken heart because my dreams are dead.
