Ben Nelson has never used an ATM, but he knows about 'holograms'

Sen. Ben Nelson is old school.

Asked by the Omaha Herald if he supports legislation to cap ATM fees, the Nebraska Democrat said he wasn't sure what those were:

“I've never used an ATM, so I don't know what the fees are,” Nelson said, adding that he gets his cash from bank tellers, just not automatic ones. “It's true, I don't know how to use one.

“But I could learn how to do it just like I've ... I swipe to get my own gas, buy groceries. I know about the holograms.”

By “holograms,” Nelson clarified that he meant the bar codes on products read by automatic scanners in the checkout lanes at stores such as Lowe's and Menards.

“I go and get my own seating assignment on an airplane,” Nelson said. “I mean, I'm not without some skills. I just haven't had the need to use an ATM.”
