My last credit card payment was due on both. A Sunday and a holiday. Easter Sunday.
I was mailing it close to the due date and that's when I realized it was impossible to get this bill paid on time. I then took out my old bills. The previous month, the due date was also a Sunday.
So of course I was late. More on that story later.
Here's a sense of how hard it was to get credit card reform moving into law.
“I’ve been in Washington twenty years. For the first 19 we couldn’t even get a committee vote on credit card reform," Ed Mierzwinski, consumer program director of U.S. Public Interest Research Group, said in an email.
I'll write more about the details after this legislation goes back through the House. It looks like it has plenty of good news for consumers.
