I am the 99%
I just got an email from Elizabeth Warren’s campaign about President Obama’s appointment of Richard Cordray as the first director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. This gives me hope that we can change this deeply broken system.
I am a native English speaker with a Master’s Degree. I am employed as a software engineer at Stanford University. Clearly, I have some advantages in my favor and I know how to use my brain effectively in many situations. And yet I signed a mortgage I could not understand because I trusted people who seemed nice to explain it to me and look out for my best interests. That was a terrible mistake that I’m paying for heavily right now.
I am one of the people whose home is in foreclosure. The stress of not being able to keep up with my house payments caused me tremendous grief, irreparable damage to my marriage, plenty of stress-related damage to my body, and has left some deep emotional scars that I am just starting to learn how to heal.
Let’s heal this country. Let’s elect people who give a damn about other people. Elect Elizabeth Warren: http://elizabethwarren.com/
