MBNA & Bush

Saturday, April 10th, 2004 · 1 Comment

I’ve had my MBNA credit card since 1998. I have a credit limit higher than I will ever need. I really like the MBNA Shopsafe tool, which allows me to generate a random, temporary credit card number with an expiration date and limit that I specify; this makes me feel good when making online purchases from sources with which I’m not familiar.

After a six-year mostly positive relationship, I may need to end it out of principle. I learned in an article in today’s New York Times that MBNA is the number two all-time contributor to Bush (after PricewaterhouseCoopers), ringing in at $606,291. It infuriates and sickens me to learn that my interest payments have apparently played a small part in funding the administration that is systematically wrecking this country, the enviornment, women’s rights, and more.

    I have just found myself in the same position regarding my MBNA card. However, I’m in a quandary; the most obvious choice for a progressive credit card, Working Assets, is issued through MBNA! So discouraging. Has anyone found a card company that leans more progressively, the lesser of many evils? Is Working Assets the only choice despite their inexplicable association?
