It is actually cheaper to use debit cards than to generate checks. Banks make money either way but the state pays less this way to transfer funds.
My point had nothing to do with saving money. Zero and his minions have no desire to do that. They are, instead, syphoning every dime they can from the flow of dollars. This isn't a redistribution thing. It is THEFT and will never be prosecuted.
Instead, this crew will leave us with a mountain of debt while they continue to drain our pockets with the taxes they are imposing. Most Banks aren't the problem... just their favored ones are the conduits.
