So, what do we do in the face of a failing Social Security program? Give private corporations and banks, specifically Comerica Bank, a piece of the pie by letting them charge their little seen transaction fees at Social Security and the Governments expense. Recently the Social Security administration came to the conclusion that its time move from paper to plastic.
6/12/2008 - Smart Spending?
Smart spending there, that so called 42 million 'saved' is going to the banks and credit card processors. In general thatís it, the companies that at the point of sale will start paying more processing fees because those customers who were paying with cash will now be paying with plastic, yet pushing more money in the wrong direction.
This is all not to even mention the further tracking of the social security recipient spending. I think everyone has gotten stupid in general just to make thing easier on themselves.
