joined by lauren ashburn. good morning. i thought they had made changes. >> last week four of the big banks said they would scale back overdraft policies and chris dodd, the powerful senate banking chair said he will prepare legislation to make sure this happens. the last years, according to "usa today" research, banks have made it very easy for people to overdraw their accounts to the tune of $37 billion of revenue. >> bottom line for the banks is really good. what do they do that helps them to fatten their bottom line and make us deeper in debt? >> there are three things. debit card transactions cost a dollar to $35. >> seems like a lot of money. i know. they can deduct a purchase chen -- when it is made, not when it clears the bank. >> i might have the money later on. >> but you don't have it right when it is made. >> reporter: and the third thing i find interesting is they process, they process from
highest to lowest. so if you have a $500 amount and a $2 amount that happened they are going to take the $500 first. >> not fair. >> not fair. >> so what can congress do? what is the new legislation? >> the legislation is being prepared. there are other things the fdic says it is possible for banks to be responsible and to do things in a way that doesn't seem to get the consumer as angry and as hot as our headline said. they say why not a small dollar loan program, something that would provide a lower cost loan to people. instead of having them rely on this overdraft policy. i will give you one about dote from tom tran who is a 36-year- old man in columbia, maryland. his father went to the hospital. he had $5,000 in overdraft fees alone. and until "usa today" went to bank of america, you know, they

day and age, it didn't take long for word to spread about the poll. facebook immediately removed the poll and the third party that supported it but 700 people had responded to the poll by the time it was taken down. here's the story as it is being reported on gawker's blog. facebook is working with the secret service to find the person who posted it and to i value wait the seriousness of the threat. but make no mistake about it, anytime the secret service launches a full-fledged investigation they are taking this very seriously. now, i want to point out that somebody has come out as the person who sponsored that third party application. and i want to be very clear here, this is not the person who came up with that poll. this is the person who created the third party application which sponsored that poll and they have come out on the blog, the daily coast. he goes by the name of dan and he says i'm the developer of the facebook poll application that hosted the should obama be
killed poll and he said i know you have a lot of assumptions about me but i have no affiliation with facebook. i'm an obama supporter and he apologized for what happened but said i had nothing to do with it. so clearly he's been getting hate e-mails about it and he is trying to clear himself from any wrongdoing here. but the bottom line, is don't make comments about killing the president. it is that simple. here's howard bernstein. i thought we were different than other places. you had a vote if you didn't like a politician. >> i'm just going to get the weather. those people have to be prosecuted. that's just stupid. weather wise some big changes in the sense that we are going in to fall. it will feel like, it is the end of september, about october and right on cue and we have a chill in the air. the next three days, 70ish today. yesterday we were 8 o. today around 70. sunshine, a few clouds are popping up in the afternoon. tonight and tomorrow, more
clouds and could be a sprinkle with an upper air disturbance. in the mid-60s on wednesday and upper 60s on thursday. the moms like me.com bus stop forecast, it is cooler, not too breezy yet. upper 40s to the upper 50s at the bus stop. some sort of january, sweatshirt or something for the little ones. partly sunny and breezy and cooler. west winds could gust close to 30. right now gusts in oakland and garrett county to 28 miles an hour. that's the windiest we have. partly cloudy and chilly tonight. lows mid-40s to mid-50s and tomorrow cooler with a chance of a shower. 48 at the air park. same with manassas. quantico 54. 52 newland. we have a chill going on and manassas to catlick in the upper 40s. winchester martinsburg a little breeze and temperatures in the mid-50s. same story at reagan national. 55. the water is helping them. southwest wind at three.
dew point in the low 40s. the air has dried out. this is thanks to the storm system spinning in southern canada. a line of shower and maybe a rumbling of thunder from toronto and buffalo back to northwest pennsylvania to cleveland. for us this is bringing in a stiff northwest wind. so we will have that breeze today at times. these winds will gust close to 30 miles an hour. clouds up here today but a disturbance rotates an this big storm tomorrow and that's why i think we have a chance of a few sprinkles. we see this on microcast nine how the clouds are increasing this afternoon and tonight, ahead of this. in the mountains some showers are possible today and tonight. some sprinkles any way and on wednesday, you see them popping up here and there. nothing too organized but a passing sprinkle is not out of the question. look at the seven-day forecast. temperatures on the cool side to start. 66 tomorrow. tomorrow night that 49 for reagan national. a lot of low 40s and maybe
