Tell Congress: Break Up the Wall Street Megabanks

Sign Our Petition Calling for a 21st Century Glass-Steagall Act

For more than six decades, a law called the Glass-Steagall Act stopped the type of Wall Street megabanks we have today from forming. Then President Bill Clinton repealed it.

The idea was simple — the everyday commercial banks where many of us store our checking and savings accounts shouldn’t be involved in the riskiest types of investments that gamble with our money and leave taxpayers on the hook.

Both the Republican and Democratic platforms support a 21st Century Glass-Steagall Act.

Let’s pass this bill before Wall Street recklessness triggers another meltdown.

Add Your Name Now

We, the undersigned, call on the Democrats and Republicans to follow their party platforms and pass a 21st century Glass-Steagall Act.

We must work together to break up the megabanks and stop Wall Street’s worst impulses from once again crashing our economy and leaving taxpayers on the hook.
