I mentioned that North Carolina has the dubious distinction of having elected the latest legislature to try and “regulate” the banks into behaving. Well, in addition to ignorant congressmen, we have talk radio as well. And this morning, Brad and Britt had Brad Miller on their show to discuss his new proposed legislation.
As you can imagine, much goodness ensued.
While discussing Mr. Miller’s proposed legislation, Brad admitted to being a customer of one of the big banks. The conversation drifted into the details of the proposed law and how “hard” customers have it today when dealing with and switching banks. During that conversation, Brad mentioned how hard it would be to switch banks, and he cited the reasons:
- Direct deposit
- Electronic bill pay
- On line banking
- Centralized banking for the whole family
All of which struck me as hilarious. Brad is basically complaining that he doesn’t wanna switch banks because the services offered by his current bank ROCK. Somehow the convenience of his current provider is SO good, that he just can’t imagine switching. And, by gawd, we need a law to fix that!
Further into the conversation, Britt asks Rep. Miller what he would say to those people who have been “preached to” about the evils of government regulation? What would you say to those folks who have been told how to think and what to say?
That’s just silly.
And THAT folks, sums up the entirety of the Left’s response to their actions.
Bank of America added this fee to us customers as a direct, a DIRECT, result of the Durbin amendment. And now, Brad, Britt and and their guest are shocked, SHOCKED, I tell you, that we people would rather they quit.
But never mind facts guys, keep on keepin’ on.
