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.

We are a single income family of 5. Dad works 65+ hours a week. Mom has Crohn’s disease and has 300k in medical debt. Mommy couldn’t keep a job even if she wanted to due to the debilitating pain and inconvenience of Crohn’s disease. Mommy quit paying her bills and Daddy has to control the finances and keep in his name to keep the collectors away. Best part about it? We pay 800.00 per month for healthcare and the insurance company decided the medicines needed to keep me from loosing my colon and having a colostomy at 25 were not covered after the fact. We have a nice home and a reliable car, and are certainly in a better boat than some. The part that kills us is the shitty insurance that is offered by the fortune 500 company that Daddy works for and that doesn’t seem to cover much. My daughters 7,5 and 6 months better make good grades and get scholarships to college because we cant finance our retirement :(
