I thought the new head of the CFPB had made it clear that he was the voice of Trump & the majority of the GOP and therefore would do nothing that might decrease the ability of businesses to exploit the public/consumers without restraint.

Of course, Congress could pass additional consumer protection laws that made it much much easier for members of the public to sue/participate in class actions, rather then letting more & more business slip mandatory arbitration/agreement to not participate in class actions into their contracts (even if you never actually sign the contract, just click on "confirm order" or "start service" or whatever and you have to look on the business's website (as in hunt for it) to find the "contract." And that's the contract of today, at least one cell provider has said (on its site), we can change the contract provision at any time, w/out telling you. It'll be on our website.

Supreme court decisions (the litigation strategy was lead/worked by two S.Ct justices when they were practicing) make all that legal.

Congress could reverse those S.Ct decisions. Amazing how that's not a priority, not even in the House where the Dems have a majority.
