Live within your means.
I do think that is the problem for the majority. However, I do feel bad for people who've fallen on hard times due to medical issues and serious things like that.

Outside of medical issues, debt problems are all self inflicted.
most debt is self inflicted,but what about people who had jobs and were paying on thier debt and now have no income, or what about people who do not have health insurance and end up with medical bills almost everybody in this country has some kind of debt. some people are irrsponiable about debt they do not care if they pay thier debt or not,but there is some who are victems of the lack of jobs it is hard for people to decide what to pay if they are on fixed incomes. you need to think about the hole picture and dont just assume that people are doing the wrong thing walk in their shoes for a wk. and see what decisions you make when ther is only a certian amount of money.

This is the first time I had ever applied for a loan. I couldn't have asked for anything more from the staff that answered any of my questions to the application process. Once this had all been completed the money was transferred quickly into my account. I will definitely be recommending 911PDAY .COM ( http://goo.gl/l0GrbF ) too my friends and family.
