On November 16 2011 US DEBT hit 15 Trillion.

Credit card companies lure American people with zero interest rates and later jack up those fees as high as 29.99%. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) proposed the ability of states to set limits on credit card and other consumer loan interest rates. Please join us in protest of High Interest Rates on Balance Transfer Day, December 11 2011. Learn more at fb.com/BalanceTransferDay

      Petition Organizer

      We, the people, call on U.S. Congress to pass the "Cap on Credit Cards" legislation, proposed by Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) to show our protest against credit card companies that impose high interest rates on debt. 73% of American families tied in credit cards and continue to pay over 15% of the money they borrowed. That is more than a "street shark" would charge on a loan. How do we stop it? We use democratic process. We sign a petition. Please join us as we are fighting for your right to never be charged 29.99%*

      29.99% is a rate that credit card companies typically start charging your account if you are late with your payment, even if by an accident. That's $435 on a $1500 credit limit to which you were lured with zero interest rates.
