Democrats Kill Amendment Protecting Americans from Credit Discrimination Based on Politics.

But your source says this:

Democrats in the House of Representatives voted on Wednesday against an amendment to a proposed bill that would prevent the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) from forcing credit reporting agencies to evaluate Americans based on political opinions or religious beliefs.


Voting AGAINST and amendment that would force credit reporting agencies to evaluate you based on politics is good, no? Maybe it's me but that article might be worded confusingly or inaccurately. If you take out the extraneous wording you are left with this:


Democrats in the House of Representatives voted on Wednesday against...forcing credit reporting agencies to evaluate Americans based on political opinions or religious beliefs.


Slow down... take a breath... read it again. It is worded very poorly as you stated. But it does clearly say that the votes against an amendment that would PREVENT the CFPB from forcing credit companies to use a "social credit" type system.

I.e with this amendment being shot down the CFPB can now legally force credit companies to consider your "social score" before they lend money to you, and/or use it to determine what interest rate you would receive if you did managed to borrow (regardless of how good you are with money management).

Yes, a double negative will do that.
