What's the point of this house bill on credit cards?!

Postby Cucumber » Sun Apr 05, 2009 7:46 pm

If the Fed rules take effect in June 2010 then why is the house wasting time trying to do a bill that would not take effect until 1 year after it is passed. Originally their bill was supposed to be 3 months but they caved into the banks and changed it to a year. It's already April so let's say they can pass it by May (fat chance) that means it won't go into effect until May 2010- a whopping 1 month before the Fed's same rules go into effect.

What's the point of this bill? This is no help.
Stop talking crap about him!

There is no point. It's window dressing so our lawmakers can pretend they're actually working for us.
Disclosure: I am a moderator/paid staff of this site, which does have advertising relationships with some credit cards that are discussed and linked to. Regardless, anything I say is my honest opinion.

Current Cards:
American Express: Blue Cash, Simply Cash Bank of America: WorldPoints Platinum Plus Chase: Amazon, British Airways, Cash Plus Rewards, Freedom, Ink Cash Citi: Thank You Premier, Dividend Platinum Select Discover: More
Primary Everyday Card: American Express Blue Cash
Primary Travel Card: Chase Sapphire Preferred
