Tell Congress to make Consumer Protection a Priority!

This petition had 77 supporters

Your elected officials are on a break from DC, but don't let them take a break from fighting for consumer protection!

While Congress is on summer recess, our elected officials have many issues to contemplate.  This August, it's up to us to remind our Senators and Representatives about the need to keep efforts to end predatory lending high on the agenda.

Every day that goes by without a Consumer Financial Protection Agency is one more day of toxic mortgages, one more day of outrageous interest rates, one more day of unreasonable bank fees.  It's time to stop the financial predators.

There is no time to waste.  The House Financial Services Committee was originally supposed to vote on the CFPA before the August recess.  Now, it's up to consumers like you to press for speedy action as soon as Congress resumes.

Write to your elected officials today and tell them to stand up for you and your neighbors by supporting a Consumer Financial Protection Agency.
