UNITED STATES OF CONGRESS
U.S. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES and U.S. SENATE
CURRENT ISSUE and PROPOSED RESOLUTION
In financial transactions where a money is borrowed, law requires the borrower be present and willing to accept the terms of lending. See 15 U.S.C. §§ 1601-1667f. This is common practice in most parts of the civilized world and, unquestionably the requirement exists here in the United States as well considering the statute. This intended debtor protection was created by U.S. Congress. Violations of this statute can carry significant penalties against the lender which the consumer may claim.
Spending of U.S. Congress is out of control and carries no burden of responsibility back to the debtor(s), more specifically, the people. As spending legislation is passed from chamber to chamber, ear marks, special interests and back room deals are given priority over those whom the spending is purportedly for. If congress continues two write checks toxic to the national balance sheet, we remain at an impasse with a failure of Congressional Integrity and Transparency, a point of issue that has needed a reevaluation for many years.
To cure this defect in congressional spending, not to dissimilar from a Truth in Lending Disclosure presented to a borrower, a Truth in Spending Disclosure can sufficiently address this concern. It would present U.S. Taxpayers a concise document identifying the proposed bill, the names of the person(s) who sponsored and co-sponsored the bill, the expected amount(s) of spending and any modifications to the original bill and who the sponsor(s) of those additional line item modifications.
This process would provide taxpayers transparency in the legislative process while correcting the problem(s) with actions of updating Congressional website(s) to show consumer citizens where their wealth has been depleted without their prior knowledge.
15 U.S.C. §§ 1601-1667f, As Amended
This Act (Title I of the Consumer Credit Protection Act) authorizes the Commission to enforce compliance by most non-depository entities with a variety of statutory provisions. Among other requirements, the Act requires creditors who deal with consumers to make certain written disclosures concerning finance charges and related aspects of credit transactions (including disclosing an annual percentage rate) and comply with other mandates, and requires advertisements to include certain disclosures. The Act has been amended on numerous occasions, adding requirements for credit cards and open-end credit; for mortgage credit such as ability to repay standards, loan origination, anti-steering, appraisal independence, and mortgage servicing; and others. A number of laws amending and enforced under this Act are listed separately.
