The Showdown in America Rolls On!

January 26, 2010

Remember October’s Showdown in Chicago?  Thousands of concerned consumers rallied in Chicago at the site of the American Bankers Association convention to raise awareness for the need for better consumer protections from financial products.

Today, the Showdown continues in its new form as “the Showdown in America” and it could be coming to a city near you!

The latest Showdown event occurred today in Des Moines, Iowa.  Local consumers rallied to ask their elected officials to stand up to the big banks, especially in the wake of the budget crisis in their state government and across the country.  The Showdown organizers say that “these state budget deficits could be wiped out if the Big Banks ‘donated’ their packages (estimated to be about $140 billion) back to the states.”

If you want to get involved in the next Showdown event in your area, keep reading our blog and follow the latest actions of the Showdown in America.
