Today’s Action: Stop the House from gutting Obama’s banking protections

A few weeks ago, the Senate passed a roll back of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street reform law. The bill amounted to a massive GOP giveaway to big banks and the financial industry — and now, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has struck a deal with House leadership to push it through, change-free, to Trump’s desk for signature.

Let’s take a moment to recall what Dodd-Frank is. This is the landmark legislation signed by President Obama after the crash of 2008 to prevent the reckless practices of greedy bankers from causing another global financial catastrophe. Who on earth could be against something so important to millions of working families? Republican politicians of course!

The vote is set for Tuesday – which means we need to make noise today.

Call or email your Representatives TODAY and demand their opposition to the Dodd-Frank rollback. Tell them we refuse to let wealthy bankers run roughshod over the rest of us.

The Dodd-Frank rollback would remove restrictions on any bank smaller than $250 billion — two dozen big banks that collectively took $47 billion in bailout funds in the 2008 crisis.

This would make it easier for banks to return to the destructive predatory and discriminatory practices that caused the great recession in the first place.

We cannot allow Trump and his Republican cronies to send us reeling back into the economic crisis that Obama and a Democratic Congress saved us from.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Representatives TODAY and demand they uphold the Dodd-Frank Wall Street reform law, and reject this latest Republican gift bag to corporations. America doesn’t need a GreatER Recession.

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition to demand a refund for Trump’s golf outings, and join the Americans demanding Congress protect Dreamers NOW!
