Do not make the payment and feed your family, but in the process damage your credit rating, put other loans such as your car, or home in jeopardy due to the damage done a non-payment ,as well as ensure that any possibility of future loans for things such as your child's education, wife's operation, etc… will be rejected. These are the very real circumstances that are faced by tens of millions of Americans on a daily basis. This is the real truth that mainstream media and politicians alike, just do not understand, or more likely, just do not care.

There are too many Americans who trudge through the daily grind of menial jobs knowing full well that when pay day arrives, they will only be able to slow the inevitable slide ever further into a mounting debt.
