Forgiven Debt Isn't Really Forgiven At All

By Kate Luther If you've been struggling with the rest of the economy, chances are you've been forced to rethink your financial priorities. And as a result, credit cards are often the first thing to go. The good news is that once you get behind, many credit card companies will offer to "settle" your account, some for as much as just 40% of your original balance. And if you're looking at a large chunk of credit card debt, making it go away for 40% of its value sounds like a pretty good deal. [more...]

How To Prioritize Your Debt Repayment Plan

Everyone knows that healthy personal finances requires debt reduction. However, paying down debt can become discouraging when you have a great deal of it, from a variety of sources. Paying a little bit extra every month on each of your debts doesn’t seem to make a dent, thanks to high interest charges. Instead, you can make more effective use of your debt repayment funds if you concentrate on retiring one debt at a time. This can also simplify matters and help you focus your efforts. [more...]

By Vincent Scordo My parents were both born in Southern Italy where unemployment is high and quality of life is superb. My mother, Annunziata, made it to the 7th grade and my father, Tommaso, has the equivalent of a technical high school diploma. Both of my parents immigrated to the US in 1975 and are currently debt free, own their own two-family home, and have plenty of cash in savings.

Obama's Empty Promise, GOP Introduced 35 Different Health Care Proposals That POTUS Won't Discuss

According to the Democrats, the opposition Republican party only knows how to say no. In fact one of the President's constant refrains is "where is their plan?"
