Those were the words of a liberal panelist on an afternoon talk show referring to the billions being lost by banks when congress put a cap on debit swipe fees.
I wonder, if Kraft Foods increases the price of their products should grocers like Kroger and Publix just "eat" the increase and not pass it along to the consumer.
If OPEC increases the price of a barrel of gas, should the oil companies just "eat" the increase and not pass that along to the consumer?
I am also tired of the liberals crying about the billions taxpayers loan banks via TARP. The funds were repaid with interest. Only a few banks have yet to repay the TARP.
Kroger doesnt come to me in the middle of the night, on a weekend before the markets open, hold a gun to my head and tell me I better pay up on that milk and cheese, or else they will never sell me milk and cheese again...and close the store...and take down all the other stores with them. You are a pathetic idiot...
