Currently merchants are forced to pay outrageous fees for each credit card transaction. This cost is currently spread amongst all consumers. It is only fair that cash paying customers get a discount or credit card paying customers pay a fee. Maybe this way the credit card companies will be forced to lower their rates when people stop using credit cards.

What this country needs is a dime that will buy a good five-cent bagel.
