Letter to
U.S. House of Representatives
U.S. Senate
I have recently become aware of the serious problems in America’s lending industry.  I am outraged that consumers no longer enjoy basic protections against unsafe, abusive loans.  Predatory lending practices are draining assets from hard-working American families and communities.

These predatory lending practices must be stopped.  Loans and other financial products are complex. They are potentially helpful and also potentially extremely destructive.  Accordingly, loan products and contracts should be regulated by the government. Only regulation can protect Americans and our communities from predatory lenders, and save the American dream. 

Please work to establish a fair marketplace for financial products, where lenders act responsibly and treat consumers justly.

Please ensure that all consumers are treated equally and fairly in the financial marketplace, regardless of their race, socioeconomic status, or any other factor.

Please ensure that all lenders are held liable for breaking the law. 

And please promise me that if I am abused by a lender, my complaint will be justly and fully heard and dealt with in the American justice system.

Thank you for your attention to this important matter.  I trust you will do all you can to stop predatory lending and save the American dream.
