    Jhawy and other dems - do you support this?

    Last December, Pelosi, speaking on behalf of Obama and the Dems, are pushing for a banking "transaction tax" of 1% on all transactions. The plan was to "sneak it in" right after this November's election...

    Please see the video here:

    Just add the www and a period before <>

    I cannot believe any citizen in their right mind would EVER support this line of thinking and keep these money-grabbers in office...

      Please get it to 1%-part of the financial bill that passed covers the use of debit cards and what institutions can charge-starting in 2005 my costs for customers that use debit cards went through the roof to the point that I no longer accept one of the cards-the rates starting in Jan will be set by the Federal reserve and I figure I will save at least $20000 at each store

      • Jhawky,

        I'm not talking about transactions at the point of sale for business owners - you have a choice of how you'd like the customer to pay. You can restrict what credit cards you'll accept. You can choose to not accept personal checks as well. And so on...

        The 1% transaction cost proposal by the dems will apparently affect EVERY transaction that consumers make at a banking institution. THAT SUCKS FOR EVERYONE EVERY TIME!

        Your initial reply had NOTHING to do with what I was trying to communicate...
