Call your Democratic member of Congress

Call your Democratic member of Congress who voted to gut Wall Street reform AGAIN!

Last week, the new Republican Congress voted on a bill to weaken crucial parts of Dodd-Frank. The legislation reversed many of the measures that were put into place after the Great Crash of 2008—letting banks run wild and rob us like they did before.

35 House Democrats voted “yes”—so we got thousands of their constituents to send them an e-mail, and over 100,000 people signed our petition denouncing them for caving to Wall Street.

The House just voted again—and this time 29 House Democrats voted “yes.” Which means that we must ratchet up the pressure on those who have repeatedly betrayed us to Wall Street.

Every time a Democrat abandons the Party to shill for Wall Street at the expense of Main Street, we must let them know we are watching and won’t forget come re-election time.

Please take five minutes to call your member of Congress, and express your dismay that they voted with Republicans to let Wall Street banks run wild … TWICE!

You can find the phone number you need to call below. The following is a proposed script you can use. Ask to leave a message as a constituent. After the call, please contact us with the form below to let us know how the call went.

“My name is __________, and I am a constituent of Congressmember ________.I am angry that the Member voted yes on HR 37. The legislation rolled back some of the crucial parts of Wall Street reform that were put in place to stop Big Banks from gaming the system that resulted in the Great Crash of 2008. I am especially angry that they voted for it the second time.

I have come to expect the Republican Congress to side with Wall Street over Main Street, but I am angry that my Democratic Congressmember would betray me like this. I will remember their vote come re-election time in 2016.”
