"One thing is for certain, is that there needs to be more transparency in the — in financial documents. In other words, a lot of people sign up to something they’re not exactly sure what they’re signing up for. More financial literacy, I guess, is the best way to put it. We’ve had a lot of really hardworking Americans sign up for loans, and the truth of the matter is they probably didn’t fully understand what they were signing up for. And therefore, I do believe it’s a proper role for government to enhance financial education initiatives, and we’re doing that, we’ve got money in the budget to do that."
