  • Absolutely on target. The bankers are just whipping Credit Unions' tax exemption for every thing we do in expanding members services. Tax exemption has nothing to do with services, it is because of the cooperative structure and nature of Credit Unions. Don't let bankers set our agenda. Let's go on the attack until they learn to listen.

  • From 1998 to 2003 credit unions over $500 million went from 30% of CU assets to almost 50%, and Dennis Dollar's policies opened the doors to accelerate the trend - Navy can now muscle in on any base. Smaller credit unions need to recognize that big credit unions are capturing members at a rapid rate, these giants are a bigger risk than taxation. Our interests are not being represented by the trade associations, we might even get exempted from any tax bill. Tax the big ones - it would make it harder for them to steal our members.

  • I totally agree, we simply cannot sit back and let the bankers dictate our regulatory future?
