Consumers Pay Credit Cards First, CC Debt Rises



February 16, 2010 – Comments (4)

Not sure where I was reading it last week, but news I was reading was saying that people were not behaving as expected in that they were letting their mortgage default in favor of paying their credit card bill.

You'd think that would hold credit card defaults down, but they are still rising.

I thought Obama's economic advisors were predicting at least 8% unemployment through 2012.

You know, the same ones that predicted unemployment would breach 10% without any economic stimulus...

I see this phenomenon alot in my work.  It is hard to feed your family with the equity in your house.  Eat first, deal with the mortgage payment second.
