Maria Bartiromo turned up on Ellen the other day to explain to the American Express pitchwoman why it is she doesn't possess a credit card. First of all, she has a debit card, which is, like, almost the same thing, isn't it? Plus she has a corporate card, which she uses all the time. (No doubt!) And have you heard about all the people who load themselves up on credit card debt and are forced to pay high interest rates? It's tragic. Of course, if it weren't for those insane interest rates, how else do you think Citigroup would have been able to afford to fly Maria around the world on its private jet?
