Tell Congress to Stop Subsidizing Derivatives Casinos

 

(The Motley Fool is a community of diverse opinions. The following is the writer's opinion and does not necessarily represent the views of The Motley Fool.)

Wall Street banks blew up our economy with dangerous derivatives funded by our FDIC-insured deposits. You can sign the petition at right supporting Section 716 of the Senate derivatives chapter, and force Wall Street to use its own money for gambling, instead of government support. We don't need to subsidize derivatives casinos.

Once you've signed, call one or two of the following key people and make your voice heard. Let them know you want them to support Section 716 of the Senate derivatives chapter to end government subsidies for risky derivatives trading.

 

Sen. Susan Collins                                                         (202) 224-2523

Sen.  Olympia Snowe                                                    (202) 224-5344      

Rep. Barney Frank                                                          (202) 225-5931

Sen. Chris Dodd                                                               (202) 224-2823

Rep. Dennis Moore                                                           (202) 225-2865

Thanks, everyone!! You rock!
