    I strongly support Senator Warren in her efforts to regulate this Wild west business enterprise. I am sure that just about everyone that has ever purchased a car has a horror story to tell about their experiences with all the “ sales managers.” I hope that the used car loan sector, in particular, is even more closely regulated.
    Thank you, Senator Warren, from the hearts of millions of Americans that whole heartedly support your efforts.
