    This "reform" better be more than a minimum charge of 50 cents for using my debit card. If these financially owned Senators do not vote for meaningful reform they are outa here!
    I am sick to death of this and I have had enough!

    A bill written by Chris Dodd, one of the scoundrels that caused the economic disaster that we're in is just solution to our problem. SARCASM!
