Americans and Credit Cards In America today there are too many people in credit card debt.

The buy now pay later mentality has seemed to brain wash a lot of people in to thinking they can get whatever they want without being able to afford it and not have to worry. That idea is false unfortunately fees and interest incur on these cards and people don’t think about those when they buy the items they want.
Credit scores are basically a track record on how well you manage your financial responsibilities. If I was a financial institution, and I saw that a customer wants to borrow money but was always late on payments, I would be a little hesitant at lending that customer money.

Rector found that in 2004 low-skilled households received about $32,138 in benefits per household on average. Rector then found that these same households paid an average of $9,689 in taxes, resulting in the average low-skill household to collect $22,449 more in benefits than paid in taxes. Taking that $22,449, and multiplying it by the 17.7 million low-skill households, Rector concluded that the total deficit for such households was around $397 billion in 2004. “Over the next ten years the total cost of low-skill households to the taxpayer ... is likely to be at least $3.9 trillion” (York).

Voter Id laws are put into place so to insure registered voters are voting. Now days at most places you have to show your id to use your credit card, so I would think everyone would have one. Critics of voter id laws are saying it cost money for low income peonnie1ple to obtain proper Id, due to their lack of ability to get transportation, or the cost of the identification. In my opinion that’s a joke; if you can’t get to the id office; how would you get to the polls? I do wonder how a person can’t be responsible enough to get a free Id but expect to vote on things that affect everyone.
