    As long as this doesn't apply to debit cards, it won't affect me very much.

    This will not affect black people in any way.

    You can avoid credit card fees by paying with cash? Praise dead jesus!

    Smart businesses won't bother. Taking plastic is the price
    you pay for getting the business. If I started charging more
    people can just go down the street and deal with another
    shop. Most people don't plan on having their car break down
    and don't always have cash on hand to fix it. If I want them
    to keep coming to me, I'll not raise my prices.

    as you know, this what happens when the govt does step in and fix things and I am sure this was to pay back their financial friends who they also gave big bailouts to.

    remember when people cried about cable and satellite TV being so expensive?

    their bills have only gone up with new charges since the government stepped in and regulated them more
    they will just charge a debit card fee of like 50¢

    This. I get cash back at the POS terminal at the supermarket more often than I use an ATM.

    I thought about getting one of those square things for when I sell trees... but why should I pay someone a fee for my labor. Really never been an issue though... as who wants to have a month of guilt sitting in their living room. And last year we got a cheque in like April with a note saying sorry it took so long...

    Meh. I'll never see them. Florida is one of the states that banned the fees.
