Today’s Action: Stop Trump from gutting Obama’s banking protections

The Senate votes Monday on a massive GOP giveaway to big banks and the financial industry. Trump and his cronies are hoping to remove the Dodd-Frank Wall Street reform law – the vital legislation enacted by President Obama after the crash of 2008 – thereby opening our economy back up to the harmful lending practices that caused the Great Recession and devastated our country for years.

And while strong progressives like Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) have expressed outrage over the bill, 16 moderate Democrats are planning to vote with Trump.

Your Republican Senator is planning to vote yes – but check to see if your Democrat Senator is too. Then, call or email your Senators TODAY and demand their opposition to the so-called “Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act.” Tell them we cannot allow wealthy bankers to run roughshod over the rest of us.

The bill has already passed the House, and would remove restrictions on any bank smaller than $250 billion — two dozen big banks that collectively received $47 billion in bailout funds in the 2008 crisis. This would make it easier for them to return to the destructive predatory practices and racial discrimination that caused the great recession in the first place.

We cannot allow Trump to send us reeling back into the economic crisis that Obama so carefully pulled us out of. And with some Democrats on his side, it’s all the more important that we get to work now and make clear that we find this dangerous legislation unacceptable.

Check to see if your Democratic Senator’s vote plans to vote with Trump. Then, email or call (202.224.3121)your Senators TODAY and demand they uphold the Dodd-Frank Wall Street reform law, and reject this latest Republican gift bag to corporations.
