    There are people claiming the government has some program to pay off your debts. They are usually con artists who want to take a “processing fee” from you and then you never hear from them again.

    The U.S. Government is not a Dutch Uncle, unless your name is Lockheed or Boeing. No free lunch for stuff you rang up on your credit card, sorry.

    The best you can do is work out a payment plan with your credit card company – reduce the interest rate, etc. Or rollover to a new card at a lower rate or to a home equity loan (yea, I know, good luck with that, today!).

    Cut up those credit cards. Sell off some stuff – if you have a hobby car, jet ski, fishing boat, or whatever, bite the bullet, swallow your pride and sell the “stuff” and pay off the debt. I know it is hard, but I can tell you first hand it feels much better to own less “stuff” and have less debt.

    Good Luck.

    I’ve talked to countless people over the years who thought the government was going to bail them out. These programs do not exist. I’m sorry.

    I don’t know of any government program that helps pay off credit card debt.
