To create jobs and get the economy back on track, Congress must pass strong financial reform! Wall Street’s greedy and reckless behavior has led to 8 million job losses, millions of foreclosures, and trillions of dollars of lost wealth. It’s time to rein them in, and we’re down to the last few weeks of debate!
Congress will make a decision on this historic legislation by the end of June. Your Senators and Representative need to hear from you now - they are certainly hearing from the lobbyists for the big banks and the predatory lenders.
We can win real reform, but we need your help to do it!
You or your colleagues on the Conference Committee merging the two financial reform bills must work so that the STRONGEST provisions make it into the final bill. We need:
- A strong, independent consumer protection agency to eliminate tricks and traps in the fine print of mortgages, car loans, credit cards, loans and bank accounts (no loopholes for car dealers!).
- Regulation of the $600 trillion derivatives market to bring these huge backroom deals to the light for all to see.
- A strong "Volcker Rule" to put an end to the casino economy where banks make risky gambles and expect taxpayers to cover their losses.
