Maybe people should simply get smarter with their money.
"Government workers are far from alone in feeling stressed about not getting paid. Nearly 80 percent of American workers (78 percent) say they're living paycheck to paycheck..."
"CareerBuilder reports that nearly 10 percent of Americans with salaries of $100,000 or more live paycheck to paycheck as well."
If you can't afford it.....Stop having kids. Stop having pets. Stop buying lottery tickets. Stop buying $800 phones. Stop buying drugs. Stop gambling. Stop buying anything at high interest rates. Stop buying new $35,000+ automobiles. Stop taking out loans. Stop running up credit cards. Get a second job. Etc....
Start making the saving of your money a priority and be ready for situations in life.
My God, now the media wants the Government to worry about the people who are not smart with their money.
And I thought after 8 years of Obama everyone in the country was happy and thriving. Obama is still out there running around taking credit for anything he can. Except for things like 78% are still living paycheck to paycheck? Now all of a sudden, there is a problem.
