Tell Congress: Pass the Speculation Tax to Take Our Money Back From the Bankers


The people who gave us the financial crisis are at it again.

The greed and irresponsibility of Wall Street tycoons demolished our economy, leaving us to bail them out -- and how do they thank us? They’re going right back to business as usual, getting rich off of our money and spending millions lobbying against new rules that would prevent future crises.

To add insult to injury, some banks are creating new monthly fees just for having a debit card.

Around the country, starting from New York’s Liberty Plaza, people are standing up and saying enough is enough. It's time for banks to be a safe place for our money, not another place to get nickeled and dimed.

One way to make banks be more responsible is to discourage the kind of risky investment schemes that caused the financial crisis in the first place.

Take action today and ask Congress to pass a financial speculation tax and rein in Wall Street greed.
