Reckless Corporations Can’t Be Trusted to Regulate Themselves
Tell Congress: Don’t Dismantle Commonsense Regulations
Public protections, such as those dealing with food and consumer products, drinking water, safe and healthy working conditions, financial services, equal educational opportunity, civil rights, toxic pollution, the well-being of children, and health care, are vital to us all.
But reckless corporations are spending millions on propaganda, lobbyists and campaign contributions to make Congress dismantle our regulatory system.
These are the same greed-driven interests that take advantage of weak or non-existent regulations to pollute our air and water, exploit workers, peddle toxic food and products that sicken and kill consumers, and pursue short-term profits at the expense of our economy’s long-term health. In 2008, their recklessness crashed our economy, causing more than 8 million American workers to lose their jobs.
Reckless corporations can’t be trusted to regulate themselves.
Sign the Petition: Tell Congress to Stand Up for Commonsense Regulations
We, the undersigned, call on our members of Congress to stand by the following principles:
1. Regulations play an essential role in securing America’s quality of life and holding reckless corporations accountable for wrongs.
2. Recent catastrophes like the BP oil spill disaster, the Massey mine explosion and the Wall Street crash were all caused by too little regulation of reckless corporations. The public needs more, not less, protection from such disasters.
