11. People are scared and think it will bankrupt them

they are barely surviving from paycheck to paycheck and afraid this will take them under. I think they have had lousy media explaining exactly how much people will have to pay from their gross or net income.

Imagine your gross income is not too bad but your mortgage, property insurance, car insurance, and car payments are high, you were okay but maybe one of the couple lost your job and now you are barely hanging on. Can't sell house or car for amount of loan so what do you do? And then you hear you have to pay for medical, you want it but are afraid. You make pretty good money but not with the payments you took on when you had two incomes.

Stupid example but I am thinking people across america during the good times could have worked up credit card bills, loans, etc and now that wages are frozen or hours cut they are struggling where once was good and this new law terrifies them if it is based on gross income because most people know they made poor judgement calls when times were good…

So Obama's team should have come out years ago when this first happened and explained exactly, not generally but exactly or close to it, how much people would have to pay. When people know they can plan and budget for it, when they don't know, fear comes in big time!
