    Its like a new flat tax the banks are initializing impacting the poor and middle class more. Libs should argue that the banks should charge .00003% of the total amount in your bank. So three dollars if you have over ten thousand in the bank.

    Re: Wells Fargo To Charge You 3 Bucks To Spend Your Own Money

    Why exactly should any of us put up with this crap? Why should we be paying the banks to use our money for their own profits? They already get to loan out our money, and charge interest on those loans, and speculate with our money, and then aren't accountable when they lose it. Why the hell should they get to charge us to spend our own damn money? The space under my mattress looks more and more appealing...

    Wow! That was an awesome feat of irrationality.

    You've done nothing to refute the notion that rightwing economic ideology supports a businesses right to charge whatever it wants for any reason it wants to. Leftwing economics, on the other hand, allows the state to regulate businesses and what they charge ir order to prevent price-gouging.

    And Well Fargo is based in the "huge hub of liberalism" known as "Sioux Falls, South Dakota"

    What exactly is there to refute? You have your own twisted perceptions of the right wing and then spew these poorly constructed stereotypes as if they are fact. I'm sorry, I'm not biting, nor is anyone else here. If you want to get into a partisan political discussion, there are far more appropriate threads to do so. This is about a bank that is charging people 3 bucks to use an ATM. Nowhere in the article does it mention the right wing. You are the person inserting that because you believe that your perceptions are true.

    And Well Fargo is based in the "huge hub of liberalism" known as "Sioux Falls, South Dakota"
    Uh...did you read the article?

    Wells Fargo plans to test a $3 monthly fee for its debit cards starting this fall.

    The San Francisco-based bank said the fee will be applied to checking accounts opened in five states starting in October.
    Also, you may want to do a little research on Wells Fargo. From Wikipedia:
    Wells Fargo in its present form is a result of an acquisition of California-based Wells Fargo & Company by Minneapolis-based Norwest Corporation in 1998 and the subsequent 2008 acquisition of Charlotte, NC-based Wachovia. Although Norwest was technically the surviving entity in the 1998 merger, the new company renamed itself Wells Fargo, capitalizing on the 150-year history of the nationally-recognized name and its trademark stagecoach. Following the acquisition, the company transferred its headquarters to Wells Fargo's headquarters in San Francisco and merged its operating subsidiary with Wells Fargo's operating subsidiary in Sioux Falls.

    There's nothing twisted about pointing out the rightwing economics has no problem with price gouging while leftist economics does.




    Uh...did you read the article?


    Also, you may want to do a little research on Wells Fargo. From Wikipedia:
    Did you? Wiki clearly says that WF's current incarnation is the result of a renaming of a corp formerly known as "Norwest Corporation" based in Minn after it acquired Wachovia. You do realize that SF doesn't require any political litmus test to operate in the city, don't you?

    Yes there is when right wing economics have nothing to do with it. You are turning this into a partisan debate when there is nothing partisan about it.

    Which proves just how flimsy the partisan argument is on either side. That one is just as flimsy as yours. Partisan politics have nothing to do with this. Please quit trying to derail the thread and try actually discussing the topic at hand rather than your own personal twisted perceptions of the right wing.

    Totally off-topic, but do your research on Hyundais. They've gotten better, but there's a reason they're cheaper. Coachwork, engine management components, lots of stuff was sub par when I turned wrenches for a living. And I've known a few folks since that had them and had problems.

    Like I said, they've gotten better, but I don't know if I'd put them up against the Japanese manufacturers for quality/durability.

    Just my two cents, ymmv. (Literally!)

    But rightwing politics DOES have something to do with it. Right now, as we debate this, our govt is setting regulations concerning the fees that banks can charge their customers. And right now, the rightwing republicans are fighting and regulations about these fees, while liberal dems are fighting to regulate these fees.

    THe only support for your claim that partisan politics has nothing to do with this issue is willful ignorance.

    I'm with Chase. They got rid of their rewards card (which they charged a fee for every year) so I'm not really losing out on anything. I don't use my card enough to earn a lot of points (my big expenditures are all bill-pay through online checking). They cancelled the fee when they cancelled the program...no harm no foul for me.

    I earn interest (but only .01% APR) on my savings account, but that's so paltry I wouldn't miss it if I lost it. We've been thinking of switching to a credit union. We have access to one that offers 3.5% on a "checking" account. Requirements are direct deposit, 10 debit transactions a month and minimum balance of $500. Easy peasy. I'd transfer my savings into it, direct deposit my "spending money" into that account, and leave my Chase account for bills.
