If it is so wonderful and unbiased, why did the government pass regulations FORCING the credit reporting agencies to give free copies of her/his credit score each year, to each individual who requests a copy?

Actually, Congress didn't pass a law giving everyone access to their credit SCORE - the FCRA law requires that each year, every consumer get access to their credit REPORT. Two different things.
