National Call-In for Real Financial Reform: March 1- 5

fat catWall Street is spending hundreds of millions of dollars to kill reform. Wall Street likes the status quo. Thousands of bankers and lobbyists are roaming the Capitol’s halls, trying to convince your senators that reform is bad for America.

The lobbyists can’t be the only people senators hear.

The latest news is that Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Conn.) is proposing that consumer protections be housed at the Federal Reserve –- the same Fed that failed to act to regulate the financial industry's abusive and risky practices that took down our economy.

Your senators need to hear the real American story -- from YOU! The banks have focused some of their most hostile attacks on defeating a key reform, the Consumer Financial Protection Agency. And they may just have the clout to kill it if we don’t push back.

That’s why Public Citizen, the Americans for Financial Reform coalition and thousands of concerned Americans are flooding the Senate with calls. Call your senators toll-free at (866) 544-7573. Tell them your story and make sure they pass real financial reform!

Use the toll free number and talking points below to call your senators now!
(Please call between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.)

CALL HERE: (866) 544-7573

Talking Points:

1.) Crack down on irresponsible and reckless behavior by big Wall Street banks and hold them accountable;

2.) Protect consumers by policing unfair and deceptive practices by credit card companies, mortgage companies, and predatory lenders, and create a strong and independent Consumer Financial Protection Agency to get the job done well;

3.) The new consumer protection agency must not be placed in the Federal Reserve. The Fed ignored pleas to crack down on predatory practices long before the financial crisis hit;

4.) Close the loopholes that allow secret and risky "shadow market" deals where big banks enjoy the winnings of gambling with our money, and then expect us to pay when they lose.
