A few years ago the banks were begging us to use debit cards because handling checks cost them money and debit transactions were handled entirely by computer. They had promotions and give-aways to get people to use debit cards.

Now, even though they report billions in profits, they are charging us for doing what they begged us to do. The banks are instituting monthly charges for using debit cards.

Why are our elected officials not presenting legislation to prevent this?

We can only do two things.

1) Vote out the officials who fail to make any effort to stop the rip off.

2) Start writing checks again. See how the banks like that.
