The New Republic, asked conservative Congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer, who often espouses the positions asserted by the banking industry during hearings of the House Financial Services Committee, if he reads the fine print on his contracts. The answer: ““I don’t read the fine print on any of that stuff,” he said. “I’m a busy guy.”
Among others who have made similar acknowledgments: Chief Justice Roberts, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Judge Richard Posner, many consumer law professors, FTC Commissioner Noah Phillips, and Alan Kaplinsky. All of which raises a question: if no one reads “that stuff,” why do we say people are bound by it?
