I don’t know what to do with them all. Hit the link. Drink in the stupidity.
House Financial Institutions and Consumer Credit Subcommittee Chairwoman Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY) today introduced the “Credit Cardholders’ Bill of Rights Act of 2008” (H.R. 5244), comprehensive credit card reform legislation aimed at leveling the playing field between credit card companies and consumers. The balanced bill abolishes major industry abuses that unfairly hurt consumers while fostering fair competition and free market values.
Blah, blah, blah.
I don’t have a right to a credit card, so why would I need a Bill of Rights if I voluntarily enter into a partnership with a credit card company? Can’t I just pay off the card and cancel the partnership if I don’t like the interest rate increases or the fees?

Of course, this bill was sponsored by a Democrat. The party and its members want to give me a Cardholders Bill of Rights, but curiously ignore the one used to bedrock this nation.
