My unemployment benefits are paid to me now on a Bank of America debit card. Isn't this new debit card fee just another way for banks to take advantage of us?

Or if you want to go directly to the petitions: https://wwws.whitehouse.gov/petitions

Once you get to the White House's site, you need to click on "View Recent Petitions" under the big yellow circle. After that, the process is a bit muddled. The names of the petitions' authors are not given, and I don't know what category Marilyn's is under. But any petition you like is worth signing. There are only 111 there right now, so it looks like people are understanding that it's better to sign an existing petition than to create a new petition that's similiar to an existing petition, which could split the pool of signatories.

"I think many of us recognize that for all but the wealthiest, life in America is getting increasingly hard. Screwed explores why, showing how this is no accidental process, but rather the product of conscious political choices, choices we can change with enough courage and commitment. Like all of Thom’s great work, it helps show us the way forward."

From Cracking the Code:
"In Cracking the Code, Thom Hartmann, America’s most popular, informed, and articulate progressive talk show host and political analyst, tells us what makes humans vulnerable to unscrupulous propagandists and what we can do about it.
