Watch the Video, Then Sign the Petition to Break Up Bank of America
Petition to Financial Regulators:
We, the undersigned, call on the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and the Financial Stability Oversight Council to break up Bank of America. Under section 121 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, you have the authority to break up “too big to fail” banks into smaller, simpler and safer institutions.
If Bank of America in its current form were to fail, it would devastate the U.S. economy. You must act preemptively to make sure that never happens. We cannot wait and find out whether another financial crisis strikes. If that happens, it will be too late to act.
In its current form, Bank of America poses a grave threat to our economy. It is massive, complex and unstable — too big to manage and too big to regulate. Its assets are equal to roughly one-seventh of the U.S. gross domestic product. If Bank of America goes down, a sizable chunk of our economy will go down with it.
Federal financial regulators have the authority to break up dangerous “too big to fail” banks into smaller, simpler and safer institutions — institutions that won’t tank our economy if they go bust. More than $1 trillion in federal assistance has already gone toward propping up this sprawling behemoth.
It’s time to stop propping up and start breaking up.
Bank of America is too big for their own good. They are not what we want in this country.

REMEMBER MY NAME; This should make NATIONAL NEWS!!! I have MUCH FRAUD documentation against BOA that you would NOT beleive (239-390-9126). For EXAMPLE: My ELDERLY MOTHER was SUED for removing More....$54,621.97 from a BOA JOINT account (NO SIGNATURE or I.D. was on the withdrawel ticket, MOM even said FOUR-times in her Deposition that she did NOT take the money) that she was listed on with her late 88-year-old sister, LEONA PIKEL (Collier County lawsuit, Naples FL) which I can now PROVE was an EMPTY account/and had a negitive balance for 60-day's at the time MOM was sued for civil-theft. In fact, Mom hired SIX (6) FLORIDA LAWYER'S and they ALL covered up BOA's FRAUD, ONE even disobeyed a judge's ORDER. In FACT, I have a NOTARIZED AFFIDAVID from a Florida Private Investigator witnessing that BOA moved $104,432.82 from MOM's SOLEY OWNED BANK ACCOUNT into another account, in which BOA REFUSES to tell MOM who the 3rd PARTY is who stole her $104,432.82 from her account. I have another letter from BOA Office of the President saying that they don't know about Mom's $30,000.00 account and they suggested to go back to BOA's Bank Branch where the account was opened to get account information - BOA is NOT "ALLWAYS" monitering what their employee(s) do with bank account's - stay far,far away from this evil, crooked bank - Guess what, the POLICE say it's a CIVIL MATTER and to hire a LAWYER - and I have MUCH, MUCH more which I can't say here at this moment - it would blow your minds!!! NOTE: The above can/and very-well will happen to you or a family member - MOM lost over $1-million dollars (Collier County, Naples lawsuit) because BOA was LAUNDERING MONEY thru her account which caused her (MOM) to appear like she stole money from her late 88-year-old sister. I would/even my elderly Mother would testify before the congress BANKING COMMITTIEE, even give a news conference. I CAN SHOW YOU HOW THE RICH ARE GETTING RICHER with help from banking theif's - I can HELP-YOU-GET-THIS-DONE....

206 -->205I can think of several reasons to break this bank up. Any hardship incurred now will be much less severe the sooner this happens rather than waiting for a real disaster. We are done being ruled by bankers.
Public Citizen, Inc. and Public Citizen Foundation
Together, two separate corporate entities called Public Citizen, Inc. and Public Citizen Foundation, Inc., form Public Citizen. Both entities are part of the same overall organization, and this Web site refers to the two organizations collectively as Public Citizen.
Although the work of the two components overlaps, some activities are done by one component and not the other. The primary distinction is with respect to lobbying activity. Public Citizen, Inc., an IRS § 501(c)(4) entity, lobbies Congress to advance Public Citizen’s mission of protecting public health and safety, advancing government transparency, and urging corporate accountability. Public Citizen Foundation, however, is an IRS § 501(c)(3) organization. Accordingly, its ability to engage in lobbying is limited by federal law, but it may receive donations that are tax-deductible by the contributor. Public Citizen Inc. does most of the lobbying activity discussed on the Public Citizen Web site. Public Citizen Foundation performs most of the litigation and education activities discussed on the Web site.
You may make a contribution to Public Citizen, Inc., Public Citizen Foundation, or both. Contributions to both organizations are used to support our public interest work. However, each Public Citizen component will use only the funds contributed directly to it to carry out the activities it conducts as part of Public Citizen’s mission. Only gifts to the Foundation are tax-deductible. Individuals who want to join Public Citizen should make a contribution to Public Citizen, Inc., which will not be tax deductible.
