To the FTC:
I cannot see any reason to be asked to surrender personal information to a credit bureau in order to exercise
a legislated right to a free credit report.
I urge you to make these annual free credit reports available more quickly to all Americans, rather than
selected sections of the US. Modifying the rule to benefit the credit bureaus is absurd, particularly since it is
the abuses perpetrated by these companies that led to the remediation of cost-free reports on the information
they obtain about us for their corporate profit.
Any information gathered should be limited solely to the end of verifying identity, and not to feed even more
data into the computers of these invasive corporations.
I would point out that the US taxpayer is the ultimate source of all federal funds. When you use bureacratic
obstructionism to benefit corporations you are basically stealing our money for their benefit.
That is certainly not conservatism as I came to understand it.
