Today’s Action: Don’t let Republicans gut Obama’s protections from banks

In his first term as President, Barack Obama and the Democratic Congress brought America back from our worst financial crisis in generations and the brink of a second Great Depression to one of the quickest economic recoveries of all time.

Democrats didn’t stop there. They also implemented crucial safeguards to prevent future economic calamities with the “Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform & Consumer Protection Act.”

But this Tuesday, the Senate will vote on a bill that would gut Dodd-Frank and make all of us more vulnerable to reckless investments by big banks.

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 that caused the great recession in the first place.

While a handful of bankers and Republican donors will get richer if this bill becomes law, it would be devastating to America’s economic future and must be stopped.

Call or email your Senators 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.

A rollback of Dodd-Frank not only would put us at greater risk of another financial meltdown, but would dangerously erode consumer protection from predatory lending and racial discrimination.

While strong progressives like Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) have expressed outrage over the bill, some more moderate Democrats are planning to support the measure — so it’s all the more important that we get to work now and make clear that we find this dangerous legislation unacceptable.

Email or call(202.224.3121) your Senators and demand they uphold the much-needed protections of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street reform law, and reject this latest Republican gift bag to corporations.
