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

The Senate has passed a massive GOP giveaway to big banks and the financial industry. Now, the bill moves back to the House, where an even more conservative version passed in 2017.

Republicans in both houses, led by Trump, want to roll back 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 the global economy.

But House Republicans are balking at the Senate’s more ‘moderate’ (read: still atrocious) version, so this is our chance to stop it in its tracks.

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