Living Paycheck to Paycheck? Congress Says Run up Your Credit Card.

Congress does it. Why not you?

Congress just tacked out my “stupidometer”. Yes, Congress has “red-lined” the limits of stupidity this morning.

Excuse me for my lack of financial wisdom, but is Congress recommending that people living paycheck to paycheck should be using their credit cards? Is it a good idea for people just making it to receive a credit line increase? Surely Congress has read the news that a recession, or worse, is upon us.
