A: There is no law that "gives businesses the 'right' to charge customers for billing them." That's because businesses (in most states) do not have to "have a law" authorizing them to everything they do.

On the other hand, you may have stumbled across a class action issue buried very deep in the bowels of American greed, namely the disparate treatment of many elderly and poor people who cannot afford the constant attacks made against them by the bad boys who bring American Greed to the elderly and poor people and stick it to them--over and over and over. Maybe there ought to be al law--outlawing American greed? Why not tax them into submission?
