The message sent from the banking industry to businesses and consumers has been received. Their need to feed their bonus machine is more important than allowing businesses and consumers to keep their money and be better capitalized to expand the economy. Consumers and businesses that use their debit cards are now going to pay for a bank executive's bonus instead of paying more for expenses or saving.
The idea that banks will not be able to function or make plenty of money without this fee is a lie. The idea that they are doing this because of restrictions on fees they charge businesses totally and completely validates the argument that they are looking out for their own profits before anyone else's. It is another scheme to protect their bonuses and will as has been the pattern of the last 7-8 years be detrimental to the economy as a whole.
I just hope bank executives remember that they took away money from the economy and individuals in order to receive their bonus. Congratulations.
