Well the latest group of executives called to the White House are heads of credit card company's senior Washington correspondent Peter Barnes who won that.
-- Fox Business has learned that the White House has called a meeting of the heads up credit card companies and bank credit card divisions or next Thursday much like the administration called in bank CEOs last month.
This time the administration wants to talk to the credit card executives about the higher fees and interest rates they've imposed on many customers especially since many of their companies got TARP.
Bailout funds last ball.
Consumer advocates screaming about the fact that some bank customers are now paying twice to fix broken banks.
Right now the executives are scheduled to meet with Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner and National Economic Council director Lawrence Summers.
But sources do not rule out President Obama attending the meeting as well.
One of the administration's top economists saying the president is worried about the fine print in credit card contracts that may trigger higher fees and interest rates.
The issue is is is when when it's it's not transparent when it's hidden when it's in small print when it seems to be completely unjustified.
When when he's arbitrarily right that's something that.
Especially when it's done in a way that's you know kind of by stealth that's not something that I think this president who would want to say.
Congress is also considering legislation to regulate credit cards more.
The industry says it bases its fees and charges on the rest of the customer that they are legitimate.
And any restrictions could limit credit or raise borrowing costs even higher.
And analysts note there are no easy answers for the White House in this controversy because those higher credit card charges are helping to generate profits for the banks as they try to recover from the financial crisis Jenna back.
