Read Liz Pulliam Weston's Article and REACT With a Letter of Your Own!

Speak Now Or Forever Pay Huge Fees (What the banking industry is proposing to be allowed to do NOW)

Here's my response. (Please don't just copy and paste it when you respond. Unique letters are always best...)

Consumers are being gouged left and right in nearly every aspect of our lives right now; many families are at a breaking point and having to choose between having enough to eat or buying their prescriptions. Now the banking industry is thinking of treating customers the way it and others treated people wanting to buy a new home (predatory lending). At what point are we going to start living the Judeo-Christian ethic of treating our neighbors as ourselves and not gouging them every time they need to do business with us?

Shame, shame! What the banking industry is proposing is a disgrace. You know it and I know it. Bed mattresses are looking a lot better these days as far as "repositories for money" goes. Where will this end if people and businesses don't start treating each other according to tenets we learned as children in school, church and synagogue?

Consider me wildly opposed to what is being proposed, and sign me....
