Interviewer: A lot of Americans with credit card debt don’t think they’ll ever be able to pay it off.

Interviewer: That’s Matt Schulz, he’s an analyst at He says 21% of those with credit card debt indicated that they’ll probably die before they can pay it off. That’s up from just 9% a couple of years ago. On the other hand, 22% of Americans said that they had no credit card whatsoever, and that’s up from just 14% last year.
