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.

In 2009 at the age of 25 I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis.  I am sick and in pain every day of my life.  Self-employed, the only insurance I can get is with our state high risk pool.  My medications cost thousands of dollars a month.  My 63-year-old mother, a retired school teacher, now works to help me stay afloat financially and pay my medical bills.  I want to live to see her enjoy retirement.  If republicans are elected in 2012, they want to do away with government-funded healthcare.  I do not want to live my life in a wheelchair or die young of complications of untreated RA. 
I am the 99%.
