Some people make major life changes to afford to drive to work.

Man drops his health insurance so he can drive to work. This is such a shame. I hope he doesn't end up regretting this, and stays well. http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/politics/2008/07/11/rubin.elex.economy.cnn

Dropping life insurance is always a nebulous choice in terms of wisdom. It's like a roll of the dice, if you are cutting it close on your finances and a bad turn of fate hits you, WHAMMO! Then again, if you can't keep your house afloat... I dunno. Would be a tough call. Usually, people can find some fat to trim. If they tighten their belts enough.

It is truly awful. I do not know how they expect people to afford to keep on living. We have not had insurance for years because of the high price of everything. We cannot afford it. It would cost more than my house payment for us to have it right now. My house payment went up and my auto insurance and electric bill this month. We are now minus about $200.00 more per month because of that. They said it is due to a credit check and an escrow shortage. That is just rediculous. We pay our house payment and homeowners every month together. I have no clue why they are that short!

Many people are making major changes in their lifestyles just to make the oil companies and their execs richer.. That is a shame, we could have such a great country if so many of the people in power weren't so greedy.. I do always remember one thing, we all have to die someday and answer for what we have done to others, how do they think they are going to explain all of this and do they honestly think they can take their money with them..
