Behind Your Back - Dodd-Frank Killed
House just passed a scandalous bill rolling back the rules created to
protect America from Wall Street after the 2008 financial crisis.
This is monumental – but it got buried by the media. Now, the
political establishment is counting on us being too distracted to speak
out against this ploy to pad the pockets of their buddies at the big
Dodd-Frank Act was passed to protect Americans from another financial
crisis like the one we saw in 2008. Thousands of Americans lost their
homes, jobs, and health care, all while footing the bill to bail out
banks because they were "too big to fail."
big banks don't care about our country – they just want more of our
money. They'll do anything. Even rewrite our laws in their favor. So
they're trying to gut Dodd-Frank. Banking interests gave politicians who
voted for this more than $25 million over the last 2 years.1
we have a big problem. Every day we're overwhelmed with sensational
news stories about the President's latest tweet, Russian interference in
the election… you name it. While America's eyes are turned
elsewhere, politicians are doing massive favors for the special
interests who got them elected, and we're paying for it.
to gut the Dodd-Frank Act is just the latest assault on the American
public in the name of special interests. We won't let these stories get
buried. We'll continue to keep you informed of the corruption stories
special interests want flying below the radar.
