    Dodd, Frank and Durbin passed legislation that increases the cost of doing business and now Durbin is railing against the banks for raising their fees in response.

    Duh!

    What did you think was going to happen?

    Were the banks supposed to count on "Hope" and "Change" for their revenues?

    More of those pesky "unintended consequences".

    They don't think anything through before they do shit.

    Anyone but a brain dead idiot would know no company is going to eat added expense.

    Its always passed on to the consumer.

    Durbin is telling everyone to let their feet do the walking from BOA. Of course the idiot doesn't seem to realize ALL banks will now be charging fees. What a moron.

    How long has this bozo been in Congress??

    Unintended Consequences should replace Hope and Change for the dimwit's '12 campaign. It'll help explain what happens to Dims forced to be on the same ticket with one-term Barry.

    Credit Union Pays You to Use Debit Card
    10/07/11 --- As big banks such as Bank of America add fees for debit card use, a credit union wants to pay you.

    The intent of the democrats with this bank fees thing is to attempt to limit the profits of big banks like BofA. Can anybody tell me where it says in the US Constitution that the US Gov't has the right to do that?
