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 advanced degrees (JD/MA).
Other than some short term work with the census, he has been unemployed for over three years.
Our oldest daughter is in college, but I’m scared about the debt she is racking up.
We are running out of savings.
My youngest daughter has a serious psychiatric condition.
I have health insurance through my job, but the deductible will be $5000.00 next year.
In just a few months, when the last of the savings run out, I will have to choose:
* The medication my daughter needs to keep her from becoming suicidal
or
* My house payment.
They cost the same amount of money per month, and I can’t pay both.
