Who is the so-called 99% and who are the 1%?
It doesn't seem to be a fair fight, as the 99'ers are going against that single 1%. And of course when you really look at it, that is exactly the case.
So who are the 1%'ers?
They are basically known as 'them'.
They are the people who possess most of the nations's wealth.
They bankroll their handpicked political candidates.
They control the banks.
They get million-dollar paychecks.
They get billion-dollar bailouts.
They do all that, but what do they don't do?
They do not pay enough taxes, and in some cases, allot less the the average American.
They don't invest their wealth in American jobs.
So who are the 99%'ers?
They are basically known as 'us'.
We are the 99% who toil at low-wage jobs.
We are the people that hold underwater mortgages.
We are the people who face foreclosures.
We are the ones who suffer job layoffs.
We are the ones who have to deal with plant closings.
With all in what we do, we still pay our taxes, but the Republicans still do not do their fair share.
