GOP is looking to create a new stock crash?


Party Like it’s 2008

In the dark days of 2008, we learned the consequences of letting the big banks write their own rules.

That’s why, thanks to the leadership of Senator Elizabeth Warren, we created the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Never again would the greed of the few go unchecked. Never again would we allow Wall Street banks to rip off hard working families. Never again.

Until now.

The CFPB is about to end “binding arbitration,” which forces people who have been cheated by their bank to go to “arbitration.” Arbitration is a secret proceeding, paid for by the bank. Needless to say, the bank almost always wins. Congress, financial lobbiests and Trump administration want to keep it that way.

Elizabeth Warren released a statement on Monday:

“This CFPB rule will allow working families to hold big banks accountable when they’re cheated and help discourage the kinds of surprise fees that consumers hate.”

We must take immediate action to defend the CFPB and their ability to protect consumers. People’s Action and their allies are organizing a massive campaign to expose their scheme and educate the public on the consequences. We are a network of organizers, building power in communities from coast to coast.

We rely on your small dollar donations to do this important work. If you agree with Senator Warren and People’s Action that we need to defend the CFPB, please make a donation of any amount today.
