Just getting back into the credit seems like they try to rob you on interest rates
The whole point of credit is to pay it off...to avoid interest...

Sound like them they're using the old FICO score credit union because it would be about the difference in the points
My understanding was that the House Financial Services Committee was to have a hearing today on H.R. 10, the Financial CHOICE Act, which would undermine some of the consumer protections of Dodd-Frank.
Does anyone know the outcome of the hearing?
According to CNN Money:
"House lawmakers on Thursday advanced the "crown jewel" of the GOP-led regulatory reform effort, effectively gutting the Dodd-Frank financial regulations that were put in place during the Obama administration.
The Republican bill, called the Financial Choice Act, passed the House 233-186 along party lines. The bill seeks to undo significant parts of the 2010 financial reform law.
Crafted by House Financial Services Chairman Jeb Hensarling, the bill passed despite vehement objections by Democrats to preserve the sweeping law aimed at preventing another financial crisis and protecting American consumers."
HR 10 passed the House yesterday (June 9, 2017) along with the managers amendment that keeps the Durbin amendment in place (reduced swipe fees for debt cards for merchants). While this is a large and complex bill, the two prime purposes are to reduce regulations that hurt small community banks and a restructuring of the CFPB to make it accountable to Congress rather than mildly unaccountable to the Federal Reserve.
Without getting into the politics of the Choice Act, I'll just say its probably DOA in the Senate since the minority party generally opposes the bill for several reasons especially ANY restructuring of the CFPB - however parts of the bill are widely expected to go foreward as independant legislation.
Good Morning fellow MyFico members,
SENATE TO PASS THE NEW REFORMED DODD-FRANK ACT
Its about time this Act was overhauled. It's been keeping SO MANY QUALIFIED BORROWERS FROM GETTING THE CREDIT
THEY DESERVE . I hope for many fellow members to turn on CNBC or any news regarding the passing of this new law. This is going to open up so many opportunities that were not there since the Obama administration.
