Article link: Get ready to pay the Durbin Fee
There was an Illini named Dick
Who played on the bankers a trick:
Their interchange fees
He managed to freeze,
And all of us now feel the nick.
To celebrate Durbin’s success,
The banks on their users assess
A five dollar fee,
For nothing is free,
Not even Dick Durbin’s largesse.
I now call on Capitol Hill
To update the five-dollar bill:
Replace Abe with Dick,
Whose interchange trick
Has done banks and customers ill.
