There are a bunch of proposed financial-reform amendments that haven't come up for a vote in the Senate. One of them would cap ATM fees at 50 cents.

A reporter from the Omaha World-Herald asked Ben Nelson, a senator from Nebraska, about the issue.

"I've never used an ATM, so I don't know what the fees are," Nelson said.

Nebraska's other senator, Mike Johanns, said he has used ATMs at most five times in his life.
