    Here’s another reason to use cash instead of debit or credit cards.

     Obama says business owners didn’t do it themselves because of roads and bridges, public education, and bank loans helping them somewhere along the way.

    But their taxes paid for the roads and bridges, equally with everyone else’s.  Why do they now “owe” more for what they’ve already paid?

    Their teachers were paid according to their contracts.  Do students owe some debt in later life to pay more taxes because some teacher did his or her job?

    Every bank loan I ever got I PAID for by paying them interest at the market rate, and faithfully making the payments on time.  They never lent anyone money for FREE, unless it was a prominent Democrat or their family, and then it wasn’t for business but a straight payoff.

    Obama thinks you don’t do anything on your own.  Government empowers all achievement.  That’s Marxism, straight, pure, and simple.

    Actually the business man “using those roads and bridges” pays more than most when he fuels or puts tires on his trucks. And then there’s all the licensing fees etc just for the privilege of providing goods and services to the “community”.

     See, this kind of crap is why I don’t bank with Citibank.

    Actually it was the vendor who started the problem, twice. My bitch is that people like myself who use cash are subsidising card users swipe fees.
