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.

My husband and I have $80k in student loan debt.
I am in the process of being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, a hard enough thing in and of itself.  I also have over $30,000 in medical debt because of that.
We own cheap cars, live frugally, have a roommate to help, and try hard to keep up.  
We no longer have any savings, we had to use it up when we moved back home after I made the decision that I could no longer continue graduate school at the time due to my illness.  
We have NO BAILOUTS.  We are unsecured.  We are at risk.
I work when I’m not too sick, and he works full time.  We have a combined annual income of less than $40k annually.  Our roommate is here because he lost his job and his house and we took him in.  He works enough to help cover food costs.
We are always in the hole.
