How would you feel if your family were a pawn in another’s plan to get rich?

Banks changed the tone of their advertising in the late 1990s. The subliminal message of the new slogans:
Spend beyond your means!
• “Live Richly” — said Citibank
• “What’s in your wallet?” — said Capital One
• “Is your mortgage squeezing your wallet?  Squeeze back.” — said Bank of America

• Banks have an inherent incentive to give borrowers more credit than they are able to afford.
• This results in: – Interest charges – Late payment penalties – Overdraft fees
– Missed payments — resulting in higher APR%
Consumers want to get out of debt, but they need a plan. 
Let's stop the cycle and build Americans a sound financial house.
