Part III: Like Bush, Citibank hates the troops

So if you missed Part I(http://www.dailykos.com/...) or Part II(http://www.dailykos.com/...) about how Buscho puts their corporate terrorist friends, including Citibank above the law here is part III. Today's Citibank screw over a soldier tactic: don't like that the Soldiers' and Sailors' Civil Relief Act of 1940 requires you to reduce the soldiers interest rates-delay and sell. Delay: Move at the slowest pace possible to marginally comply with the law by creating an imaginary bureaucracy. Sell: Then sell the accounts all against the spirit of the law. The point of the Soldier's and Sailor's Civil Relief Act is to allow soldiers to concentrate of what they are doing, and in protecting their own lives by allowing them to not have to worry about finances. However, similar to Bush, Citibank doesn't care if people live for die, as long as they make money out of it.

tri's diary :: ::

"My husband enlisted in the United States Marine Corps during the recent war in Iraq. Upon the advice of his recruiter, I requested relief from our creditors in accordance with the Soldiers' and Sailors' Civil Relief Act of 1940. Citibank finally responded and complied with the Act. However, they ALSO have turned this account over to TWO COLLECTION AGENCIES (copy of letter enclosed).
"I am filing a complaint against Citibank because they are ruining our credit rating by ignoring my requests regarding relief and selling this account to collection agencies".http://www.innercitypress.org/...

This is just sick. If Shitibank dragged out the process shouldn't they be held accountable and not be able to sell the accounts. Shouldn't they take responsibility for their deceitful lack of timely action. I thought the Buscho government was all about accountability . You know those poor people and middle class people. How dare they be poor or middle class? We need to hold them all accountable, but us well were above that.. This is the rethug government for you. No accountability for the rethugs and no accountability for their corporate terrorist friends.

But don't just sit here and read this! Do something about it. Know someone in the military or who has family in the military-show these articles to them. The message I would hope that they get is two fold;

Citibank is evil and that they should take their money out of Citibank and tear up their credit cards.

Buscho and the rethugs aren't on the side of the troops. The rethugs and demoncrats in Congress put the needs of rich yellow elephants over the needs of the troops. They don't care about their safety while they are in Iraq, they don't care about their lives when they return home, and they don't care about their families during either time.

Send this to your representative too. This is an outrage. I want answers about this! Where is the accountability for the rich! Congress better hold these corporate terrorists accountable!
