    Sounds like the nature of business to me....If the government doesn't want cost associated with a service passed along to customers, then maybe the government should get its nose out of business.

    So them responding to a government policy (to help business, not people) is purely right wing evil, but the policy (and people who created it) that lead to the change has no culpability??

    I was a loyal customer of Wells Fargo for over 20 years but no more.

    I think if the rest of the Banking community does't play follow the leader Wells Fargo will lose business.

    I do business with US bank and use my Visa debit card for everything and pay nothing for the privilege.

    If all banks go this way, credit unions will see an increase in people joining. till then shop around, I pay no fees on debit, credit or checking account where I bank.

    If people don't like it, they will go somewhere else.
    Free market competition, and all that.

    If you're going to look for the changes that led to these changes, you're going to have go back to the financial deregulation that occurred when Reagan was president.

    And yes, it was the rightwingers who fought for deregulation of the banking industry. Before that, savings banks (where most people kept their savings) were able to profit by investing the money that people deposited into their savings acct. Now, banks are more profitable than ever but we are somehow to believe the inane proposition that they can't make a profit unless they charge us to take our money out of the bank using a debit card. Somehow, the fully automated processes of today are somehow more expensive than the manually intensive operations from decades ago.

    In general, profits equal exploitation. Nevertheless, people need incentive to produce; therefore, profit is a necessary evil.

    Have not paid banking fees for years. Still don't today for checking, debit, or credit. People are free to shop for the service that fits them best.
