Is anyone else besides me fed up with the way our government is acting? I am scared about what is happening to our country. We are not coming together, the government is dividing this country more than ever. It is pitting hard-working, responsible people who pay their bills and save against those who are looking for free rides. I have a problem with my tax dollars going to pay off someone's mortgage when they got themselves in over their head. When did our country start rewarding BAD BEHAVIOR and punishing those of us who try to do the right things in our life? How many of these people are driving new cars? Buying designer clothes? Have they sold off their "things" to help pay some of their debt? I'm driving an 8 year old car, my husbands truck is 15 years old. I shop at Walmart, no designer clothes for us. I cut coupons and buy sales to save money.
My family lives within our means. We save, we have a realistic view of money. If we don't have the cash, we don't buy it. It's that simple. When we bought our home, we were approved for 3 times the amount of our house, but we weren't blinded by status symbols like most people. We knew how much we wanted our payments to be and we stuck to that. COME ON PEOPLE, WAKE UP!
