How to end the deficit? Stop the wars, and tax the rich!

I am 23 years old
I am a female (not that it should make a difference, but apparently in our society it does…)
From the day I moved out of my parent’s house, I’ve supported myself 100%, not because they don’t love me but because they can’t support my dreams financially.
For over two years I schlepped 2-for-1’s and shots to pay for my rent, a used car, and tuition at a community college.
Now I’m attending the University of MN and I depleted all of my savings just so I wouldn’t have to take out a loan this semester. I’m trying to get by debt free and it seems near impossible.
I’m majoring in journalism, a profession I consider a civic duty. I know my salary will never break 5 figures and I’m OK with that because I’ve learned to live within my means.
I am the 99%.

Remember when voting was considered a civic duty? Now it’s journalism. Agreement! I look forward to your reporting, and wish you well in achieving your goals.
