    Consumers Use Credit Cards for Necessities as Inflation Cuts U.S. Incomes

    Consumers in the U.S. are increasingly using credit cards to pay for basic necessities as income gains fail to keep pace with rising food and fuel prices.

    Consumers Use Credit Cards for Necessities as Inflation Cuts U.S. Incomes - Bloomberg

    The middle class who used to rely on their homes as savings have seen their home value plummet to where their mortgages are higher than worth of their houses..

    This is the lowest Ive ever seen the middleclass in my lifetime, the worst postion they have ever been in...and the teaparty keeps RAGING how they need to rip the genitals off public workers and Abolish social security and medicare...

    This is the most disgusting display of greed in my lifetime also...and I pray it all backfires and blowsup in their faces.. This is truly dispicable

    Why is it that when prices go up every douchebag doesn't actually consider the causes of raising prices and just goes right to "the rich are greedy" Its a bit stupid.

    Oh sorry this is the everyone wants to end stuff they wanted to end forever...so lets just rage against those people time.

    Nevermind.

    Well, I'll tell you how you can keep up with rising prices. First, vote out all the incompetents that are supposed to represent you, but for some reason won't. Party affiliation doesn't matter. Vote them ALL out!

    Second, you don't need to watch Will Smith's newest movie. He's a bad actor and watching the garbage Hollywood produces today only makes you dumber than you already are. The film industry is deliberately enslaving you.

    Third, even if you walk a mile instead of using your car to go to the store, you won't die I promise.

    Fourth, eat at home and stop going to restaurants every time you're hungry just to look like a goddamn moron because you ordered a $3.95 a la carte taco that you paid with your credit card when you could have prepared a nice dish with what you've got left in the fridge.

    Fifth, make a goddamn budget. Do you know math? Well, take a book and learn to add and subtract. If you earn $1,800 a month, you cannot spend more than that. Got it? Want me to make you a drawing?

    And sixth, learn to give value to small things like reading a book or having a conversation with your friends or relatives instead of destroying your future by maxing up your credit cards on something that cost 3 bucks and you didn't need in the first place.

    Oh no! The people closer to bottom have it harder with a shorter way to fall! What will happen next? I imagine something predictable. Ask the gov why house prices went up, ask the gov why the value of the dollar is falling faster than ever. While you are there ask them why houses got to be so expensive it took thirty years to ever dream of fully paying one off. Then come back here and say what you just said.

    The tea party is just so evil! They want to take your cake away that they PAY FOR. Maybe if you douchebags didn't pay the other side of the table to agree with you, all those states wouldn't have been trouble. Maybe if you realized that the right to associate doesn't mean bargain, it means form a group. I imagine all of this is hard to follow.

    Amazing how we have a debt crisis in our country and people are going to add to their own personal debt. Priceless!

    I think it's the only choice they have.... I racked up debt in college and I am paying it off. Everybody does it from time to time.
