Have You Been Blindsided by Junk Fees? Take My Survey

Hello, None of us are a stranger to junk fees – at banks, airlines, and concert venues, or for cell phone plans, ATMs, and car sales– we've all fallen victim and know what a frustrating burden they can pose. This price-gouging costs working families hundreds – sometimes thousands – of dollars a year. It’s not only costly and maddening; it’s downright dishonest and makes it harder for folks to pay their bills. It’s time to stop companies …  Continue Reading

Fighting for America’s Economy: A Message from Rep. Huffman
