TUESDAY 6/6/17 CALLS TO ACTION: The only time I’ll ever be anti-CHOICE

FEDERAL:

Keep Wall St from creating another economic crisis like we had in 2008 by opposing the Financial CHOICE Act and supporting the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau

  • Click to oppose Wall Street’s CHOICE Act

    The Financial CHOICE Act seeks to revoke the expansive financial regulations passed under President Obama after the 2008 financial crisis

  • The bill would remove the power through which the federal government can label a bank “too big to fail,” and disassemble it before it collapses and triggers another crisis.
  • The bill renames the CFPB the Consumer Law Enforcement Agency and reduces its power to enforce pre-existing consumer protection laws.
  • Because we have not seen the President’s tax returns, we do not know if this CHOICE Act will directly benefit some of his creditors, therefore causing another conflict of interest in his already suspect financial dealings.

Call Rep. Mark Walker

SCRIPT: I am calling from the 6th District. I would like to know why Rep Walker believes that Wall Street can be trusted to look out for the interests of middle and lower income Americans. History tells us that Wall Street will run roughshod over the very people Dodd-Frank and the CFPB seek to protect? Why does Rep. Walker insist on siding with Wall Street and not the middle and working class constituents who elected him?

STATE:

Good news! The Supreme Court has upheld the ruling of a lower court that the legislature did indeed gerrymander their districts along racial lines. The Supreme Court also declined to weigh in on whether a special election should take place in 2017. That will be for the lower court to decide.
