Stop Unnecessary Credit Reporting

Unnecessary Credit Reporting Is Invasion of Privacy and Discriminatory

During these difficult economic times, it is outrageous that employers, insurers, and other unnecessary recipients of private credit information are allowed this access when it has absolutely no bearing on one's ability to perform a job or drive safely.

I urge you to create a national law that would end this practice, which is hurting good and decent people who are striving to do the right thing - simply get by and get back to work! The only time personal credit should be reported is when an application for credit has been rendered. Personal credit is just that, personal.

With so many people out of work and with failing credit, this discriminatory practice can only exacerbate the unemployment problem and serve to further divide the gap between the working and upper classes.

We are all part of the solution, not just those who are fortunate enough to remain unscathed by this recession. It's time to restore sanity to the balance of power.
