Congress votes to disallow consumers from suing Equifax and other companies with arbitration agreements
The Senate voted late Wednesday night to strike a federal rule that would have allowed consumers affected by the Equifax hack to sue the company. Without it, the millions affected by the historic security breach may be disallowed from related joining class action lawsuits. This specific rule, and only this rule, would be nullified if the joint resolution is signed by the President.

Not to bring politics into this, but I am
It passed the House 231-190: all 231 were Republicans, and 189 of the 190 were Democrats with ONE defecting Republican who voted Nay.
It passed the Senate 51-50: all Republicans voted yes, but Louisiana's John Neely Kennedy and South Carolina’s Lindsay Graham voted against it, with Vice President Mike Pence breaking the tie

I hope this whole thing will force the government of using a SSN as a unique identifier and move to a better system.

I read today that some senators are pushing for this exact thing.
