Americans whipped out the plastic more in May than any month since November 2007, before the recession began. Is it a bad sign that so many are adding so much credit debt? We'll talk about it on The Sound of Ideas Tuesday. We'll also look at a recent settlement that could allow retailers to pass along costs to customers who pay with credit cards and we'll assess the impact of consumer protection laws that took effect in 2009 and 2010. Join host Mike McIntyre at 9:00 here on 90.3.
