Actually, yes.

Both the House and Senate passed resolutions declaring April as Financial Literacy Month.

Contrary to existing financial theory I was raised to believe that money was what you use to pay the bills. I have never gone past that. I can't afford to.
Financial theory is for people who have discretionary dollars to spend. It is not for people like me who work to pay the bills.

Thanks 1ke, that was a good website. And its great that congress passed a resolution about financial literacy month, but given their track record of spending, I doubt it will make a difference to them - they're different!!

I think you misunderstand what Financial Literacy is and how gaining skills can help you.
