It's no secret that the big credit card companies can (and do) jerk their customers around. Miss a payment by even one day and you'll pay a hefty penalty. Your interest rate is likely to skyrocket as well.
Oklahoma's two senators, Inhofe and Coburn, sided with the banks. Of course they did. It's the Oklahoma GOP way: always side with the big money over the little guys.
To be fair, far too many Democrats sided with the banks as well. Thanks for nothing, guys.
