  1. I've been hoping things get better for over 40 yrs and they don't. They just get worse and worse. Stop voting for politicians with Ds and Rs after their names!! Vote 3rd Party.

  2. You have to live within your means and it's a challenge. Single parent with three kids. I have to really stretch my budget and when you have a little extra put it towards a utility bill or buy a gas card dont buy anything that isn't essential

  3. The Ukraine-Russia conflict and the government who control the senate seats which is the democrats are evil because they want the American people to be homeless by giving out free money to Ukraine in the war that cause Americans taxpayers dollars a lot money. Which that money they send to Ukraine which American people money it be use for America but our government it cause everything to go down hill in America.

  4. They are just fine. We live below our means and because of it, the inflation is not affecting our lifestyle. This is why it's important to own your home.

  5. I realized that the secret to making a million is saving for a better investment. I always tell myself you don't need that new Maserati or that vacation just yet. That mindset helped me make more money investing. For example last year I invested 80k in stocks (with the help of my Financial Advisor of course) and made about 246k, but guess what? I put it all back and traded with her again and now I'm rounding up close to a million.

  6. Miss eating pizza hut time to buckle down and live within your means better start cooking folks traveling & all those activities will have to get cut people that's not adding to your household success or come will have to get put on the back burner no cap💯👀🧠

  7. its absolutely ridiculous that even at 40-50k a year you cannot live in a decent apartment or house, have a car and be able to go on vacation every year. This economy needs to change.

  8. It boggles my mind how out of touch I've been about how financially stupid the average American is. All they do is spend all their money and live far beyond their means. No saving or investing.

  9. They must recognize their own mediocrity as painfully typical middle class. I'm 38 own $700K home plus 7 digit investment. When I eat at Five Guys, they should microwave Hungry Man at home 🤣

  10. Ok people let’s take out the struggle chart so we can see how much it’s ok for people to suffer 😑 for all those who think it’s ok because they aren’t doing so bad

  11. These are not people that are suffering. You wanna talk about people that are suffering. How about go talk to the ones that are homeless!

  12. Please tell me this is a joke. They have to swim in their own pool and give up on Pizza Hut? This seems out of touch. They have cars and houses. And why are they making a point of them praying? Does it help? They didn’t mention why it was significant enough to show it twice.

  13. this is planned !!! engineered !!!welcome to the new great reset they wont stop until all poor people are ready for the fema trailers!!!

  14. Loving it! A direct result of Biden's stupid policies. But, but, but, Orange Man bad! That's the karma you get for stealing the election!

  15. Get back at me once people are really struggling. I still see sports arenas and stadiums filled to capacity, entertainment venues filled to capacity, fast food joints packed inside and in drive thru, dine-in restaurants bustling every night, traffic worse than ever, and the shopping centers and malls bustling with people every weekend.

    It's hard to sympathize with anyone when ppl are still living like gas is $1.50, minimum wage is $20, and inflation is back down to 2.8%.

  16. People living in semi-mansions struggling to make ends meet. People living in small apartment units in Eastern Europe doing okay-ish.
