Recent news reports show that politicians are coming under fire for the repeal of Glass Steagall back in the 1990s. Newt Gingrich, who originally supported the repeal has reversed course, Paul Ryan who has attacked the much weaker Dodd-Frank Act, recently said reinstating Glass Steagall would be a good idea. Democrats have also voiced support for a Glass Steagall reinstatement.
This is a clear sign that politicians are feeling the heat! But, at the moment, all it amounts to is lip-service.
And that is why we can't stop now! Please go out on the web and spread the word. Please go to your occupations and let them know about this petition. Please tell your friends and families! We should never let banks trade family assets on the stock market again! It flies in the face of basic fairness. Please help to spread the word! Let's make the politicians live up to their words. Let's hold their feet to the fire and make them serve the interests of the people, not of Wall Street!
