Who Are the 99 Percent? Story #27
Worked since I was 16; in 2006, lost my job, sold my home, and moved in with my 87-year-old mother; took many months to find temporary jobs; worked for three years+ with no benefits; too young to retire; cancer survivor, canít afford health insurance; watching retirement & savings shrink.
Fear: global depression, more bank failures, inflation, neocon dictatorship, more unjust invasions and loss of innocent lives, environmental collapse, increase in private prisons where jobless become prison population; now I rent a room in Mexico to get needed medical care; mom is in the hospital and I canít afford to come home; is this the Christian nation neocons speak of? I am the 99%
