starting jan 27. Thank you democrats congressmen Barney Frank and Chris Dodd! Passed in 2009 while Democrats had majority of House and Senate, the Dodd-Frank Act for Wall Street Reform allows stores, restaurants, gas stations can surcharge you for using your credit card starting Jan 27! Yahoo "news" has not uttered a word about it because this pile of trash legislation was ram-rodded through by Democrats signed by Obama. Walmart and Target already announced they will not surcharge credit cards, but other stores will charge without warning. All you can do is always look at your receipts for the credit card surcharge and discontinue business with anyone who charges you for it.
