But we absolutely can, and should. We will need to ram it down their throats of course, along with their buddies. All we need to do it vote on it. That said you need to be careful how you write that one, as there could be blowback from choosing to erase your own credit history.

That said, if you can request the transfer of that data to the third party of your choice in addition to accessing it yourself, as well as it's deletion, you can break the power dynamic they rely on. At that point the least competent or most predatory credit agency could easily be put out of business overnight, and they suddenly will find the motivation they have been lacking.

Also that means you could transfer your credit reporting data to something like your local credit union instead, which has an alignment of interests in your financial well being.
