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 am a divorced single mother of 3.  My oldest who is 19, can’t afford to go to college and is working odd jobs & living in my parent’s basement.  I am disabled due to an accident.  I have been turned down for SSI repeatedly.  There are days I can’t walk.  Usually I can get around with a cane, but sometimes have to use a walker.  I am 37 years old.  I am over 40k in debt w/ defaulted student loans.  20k in medical bills.  I get $100/month in child support and clean houses for a living ($400/month income.) Even tho doing so causes me so much pain that I vomit from it, and have to take 2-3 days to recover and have 3 times re-broken my bones from being on my feet against doctor’s orders.  There is NO hope!! My children would be better off with the money from the life insurance policy my parents have on me.  I’m worth more dead than alive.  I AM the 99%!!
