Credit Discrimination

According to changes to Reg Z via the CARD Act, credit issuers must consider only an individual's personal income and may not consider household income. This change causes discrimination against stay at home mothers by making it impossible for them to obtain credit independently, despite having sufficent ability to pay. Credit issuers should be able to consider household income for married individuals.

Change the CARD Act to stop discriminating against women

According to changes to Reg Z via the CARD Act, credit issuers must consider only an individual's personal income and may not consider household income. This change causes discrimination against stay at home mothers by making it impossible for them to obtain credit independently. Credit issuers should be able to consider household income for married individuals.
