    I took the opportunity once to contact my legislators once regarding these arbitration agreements, one of whome was the head of the senate judicial committee at the time, and the reply I got back was simply "I don't believe in legislating contractual terms", basically saying that he doesn't want to do anything to weaken a businesses ability to screw consumers via arbitration contracts and other non consumer friendly contracts.
