Heather Booth: Obama is Right to Fight for Real Financial Reform
Heather Booth, Director of Americans for Financial Reform (our partner organization), has started blogging over at the Huffington Post. Her first post is about President Obama’s financial reform message in last night’s State of the Union address. She said:
“Last night…President Obama reinforced his ambitious agenda to fix the economy and enact financial reform, including measures to hold Big Banks accountable for their reckless actions that led to our financial crisis and the loss of millions of jobs:
[Pres. Obama:] The House has passed financial reform…And the lobbyists are already trying to kill it. Well, we cannot let them win this fight. And if the bill that ends up on my desk does not meet the test of real reform, I will send it back.”
Americans for Financial Reform has been working with Americans for Fairness in Lending and other consumer advocacy groups to build support for financial reform. As Heather says, “we can rein in the big banks and Wall Street – if we organize.” Become a part of the movement and write to your Senators today!
