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
