    I would like ot know if it is reasonable or even legal for Citibank to raise consumer credit card rates to a minimum of 18.99% for all card holders and a minimum of nearly 30% for defaulted accounts, making it even more difficult for consumers to keep their heads above water. I thought the bailout money was given to them to help open up credit markets and ease the credit crisis consumers are facing? Instead of doing this, Citigroup was purchasing other banks and now they are getting another $20 billion in assistance? Can you help me understand this?

    Dear Anderson
    Im appauled that goverment only seems to help the fianacial sector and wall street! The small business owner in america is being overlooked ,but accounts for over 99% of the jobs.These jobs are being lost every day and businesses are closing at an alarming rate. The fact that Citi can in one swoop wipes out 20 % of its work force means that they are to fat to begin with. I find it interesting that a company charging me 17.7% interest on my credit card from them can not be profitable, my credit score is a 780,not suprime material.
    Im a independent used car dealer,sales are down 50% , I have not taken a check home for myself in 4 months, my employees are not layed off ,have all been paid and all still have a job currently. Im doing what every small business owner is doing,Trying to survive! Perhaps the goverment should start at Americas foundation,SMALL business and shore that up first.

    Can Citi subtract from my credit card debt for my generous bail out contribution? If Citi goes under, am I off the hook for this debt, kinda like when rich people die they sometimes forgive their debts, I think Forbes did that and George Washington freed his slaves upon his death.
    What if congress stipulated that Citi can only charge their debtors the same interest rate as the gov't is lending money to them?
