She Fought the Bank (And She Won)

Wednesday, November 02, 2011

Earlier this morning, The Takeaway reported on Bank of America's reversal on its plan to charge customers a $5 monthly fee for using debit cards. Public outrage coupled with over 300,000 signatures to a petition calling for Bank of America to drop the fee led to the reversal. Molly Katchpole, the woman who spearheaded the public effort to get B of A to reverse their position, talks about her victory.

Of course no mention of the names Dodd/Frank and Durbin.

If $5 is outrageous then wait until the revenue code is "reformed" and tax deductions and retirement accounts get soaked.
Good luck with a petition to the federal government against that and the constant barrage of defamation that will be the greeting like the Tea Party endured.

Many people who will be let go from the banks as a result of this political meddling will also be looking for a full time jobs while the vacuous media wonders how that happened.
