As a young man I served honorably in the Navy. In the 40 years since, I have been a teacher. Now I am retired. Wealth was never a priority - I did expect a decent retirement income and health care and I believe I saved for it with deductions from every payroll check. I raised 3 children. Now, I live in an apartment with my working daughter and grandson. My retirement doesn’t always cover all of my share of the monthly bills.
I want decent paying jobs for my daughter and the youngsters I educated. I want a decent education for my grandson.
And I am sick of providing welfare to multinationals and being forced to pay for insurance that doesn’t insure, food that doesn’t nourish and taxes that support arms, oil and drug cartels. I am sick of politians loyal to Wall Street.
I am part of the 99%
