I just checked my own credit card statement, and in the past year, my interest rate has gone from 7.9% to 19.15%. In January 2009, my rate was 24.9%, and from Feb. to July, I was charged 23.15% interest. Meanwhile, Bank of America is getting loans from the government at 0% interest. Bastards.
Time that we ask our elected officials to start charging banks the same interest rate for TARP funds that they charge consumers. Check out debtorsrevoltnow.com and see what you can do.
