County “Peppers” Public With New Fees

David Pepper and Todd Portune voted Wednesday to explore imposing new fees on the public when transacting credit card transactions with the County. The fees will range between $2.95 and $50 per transaction. Read here about the how these liberal democrats now see the public as prey to pluck out their eyes, rather than customers to be respected. Listen to a funny dialogue between Pat DeWine and Todd Portune on the topic here.

"Almost every business accepts credit cards and checks without an additional penalty because they want customers to enjoy the convenience those transactions offer," said COAST Chairman Jason Gloyd. "Our out-of-touch, tax-and-spend politicians simply see these transactions as another chance to harass an already over-burdened public."
After the defeat of the Super Sized Jail tax in 2007, Pepper and Portune have repeatedly attempted to close the County budget gap with increased revenues, rather than cutting bloated County spending.

“It’s the spending, stupid,” said Gloyd. “These types of indignities piled upon the taxpayers are what Republicans get for failing to run an endorsed candidate against Portune.”

Commissioner DeWine courageously stood against the excessive fees.

  1. I think they have to check with the Banks. I think in every agreement there is a stipulation that the merchant can't charge more for a credit card sale that a cash sale.
