New rules are being proposed are designed to weaken the rights of a debtor, meaning debt collectors can legally harass people for money – up to seven calls a week, every week – and for every debt. Seven debts – that’s seven calls a day – 49 calls a week. Lisa Stifler from the Center for Responsible Lending joined Thom Hartmann to explain the debt proposals.
