More than half of consumers say they think the federal government should pass legislation to help subprime borrowers avoid foreclosure, according to the latest Experian-Gallup Personal Credit Index survey.The survey found that 55% of respondents favor such federal action, Experian reported. It also found that 50% are uncomfortable making a major purchase such as a home, a car, or major appliances over the next three months, and that 61% who said they were very familiar with subprime loans believe the problems in the subprime market will spill over into the wider mortgage market.
