Ask Your Senators to Support Real Financial Reform
Congress is considering legislation to create a Consumer Financial Protection Agency to guard the public against misleading and unfair credit cards, loans and mortgages. In the Senate, Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Conn.) has proposed a comprehensive financial reform package that includes a strong Consumer Financial Protection Agency.
We're concerned that some senators might stand with the big banks instead of their constituents.
The big banks are spending hundreds of millions of dollars—from the billions they got in taxpayer-funded bailouts—on lobbyists and public relations firms to oppose significant consumer protections. Your senators need to hear from you about the need for reform to rein in Wall Street and allow our economy to grow sustainably.
Use the simple form below to tell your senators that you want a strong Consumer Financial Protection Agency and a strong economy that works for all of us. Support the Dodd Financial Reform Package and oppose any attempts to weaken the consumer protections or oversight of the banks and Wall Street!
