Reform Opponents’ Political Gamesmanship Serves Wall Street, Not Main Street

For Immediate Release

"Tonight's vote against bringing Wall Street reform to the Senate floor for open debate and an open amendment process is pathetic political gamesmanship.  Wall Street cobbled together just enough votes to obstruct reform.  Each vote is a slap in the face to American families on Main Street who've lost jobs and home values, and whose retirement accounts read like Stephen King novels. More delay and more secret negotiations serve Wall Street titans well, they but they hurt Main Street families. We urge opponents to reconsider their votes, stand up to Wall Street, and vote for reforms that will protect consumers, open shadow markets and end, once and for all, ‘too big to fail.”

Defend the CFPB

Tell your senators to oppose the “Financial CHOICE Act,” which would gut Wall Street reforms and destroy the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau as we know it.
