While balancing my checkbook for the last year, I noticed that I paid $235 in overdraft fees. Wow! That is a lot of money. I could have bought a new golf club, had several nice dinners, or done a variety of other things besides paying overdraft fees.
The government is the only organization that does not have to pay overdraft fees. If they run out of money, they simply print more money! I cannot print more money…well, I could…but I would probably end up spending time in prison.
