WASHINGTON ( TheStreet) -- Small-business owners expressed outrage Thursday in reaction to the Federal Reserve's final ruling on debit card interchange fees."It is beyond disappointing that after fighting for months to bring fairness and transparency to debit-card swipe fees in order to give hard-working Americans a much-needed break, the Fed has given in to the pandering of Wall Street," according to a statement by Dennis Lane, spokesman for Reform Swipe Fees NOW!, a Washington-based coalition formed by the Retail Industry Leaders Association that advocates on debit and credit card swipe fees.
