Perhaps Mr. Flaherty should reign in the banks with their highly paid CEO's with bonuses in a time of recession. Perhaps he needs to curtail their manipulation with their secret raising of fees and their bait and switch programs and tactics on the taxpaying people. Perhaps he needs to adjust the credit card companies interest fees and put a cap on it instead. Seeing as he freely forked over my taxpaying money to big banks to secretly bail them out in a time of crisis. Interesting they pat you on the back to reel you in, and then punch you in the stomach when you have difficulty paying. There "collections" people phone you up and tell you that you are a "bad guy" for guilt purposed, then offer you one of their interest laden programs that will make it all better. Maybe something needs to be done about that MR. FLATHEAD..
