We're facing a stark choice between continuing subsidies and tax giveaways to giant corporations like Wells Fargo and the top 1% of wage earners on the one hand and making investments in the strength of our working families on the other.

Stop The Next Giveaway To The 1%

We’re facing a stark choice between continuing subsidies and tax giveaways to giant corporations like Wells Fargo and the top 1% of wage earners on the one hand and making investments in the strength of our working families on the other.

We demand that the Administration and Congress reject any so-called "Grand Swindle" and settle the Fiscal Showdown according to these three principles:

End the Bush tax cuts for families earning more than $250,000 annually.
No cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security benefits.
No cuts to vital services for low-income people.

Campaign for a Fair Settlement
Demand answers from Congressman Barney Frank

Congressman Barney Frank, former chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, recently made a statement criticizing the Federal investigation and lawsuit against JP Morgan Chase for securities fraud carried out by Bear Sterns. This statement is insulting, and damaging to the cause of accountability for the instigators of the 2008 economic crisis.

Dear Representative Frank,

Your recent statement criticizing the Federal investigation and lawsuit against JP Morgan Chase for securities fraud carried out by Bear Stearns[1] is both a gross misrepresentation of history and damaging to the cause of accountability for the instigators of the 2008 economic crisis.

Your echoing of Jamie Dimon’s disingenuous and misleading talking points on the acquisition of Bear Stearns hurts efforts for stronger action against Wall Street and change to a corrupt system. This lawsuit is not the crusade of one Attorney General but rather the cumulative efforts of organizations and individuals committed to justice.

As someone who has sought meaningful reforms and accountability in the past, we expected more from you. This filing was a critical first step to real accountability. It should be commended and built upon, not torn down by legislators making excuses for Wall Street.

We ask that you retract your statements and explain how as one of the architects of financial reform, you choose to side with Wall Street over the people.

Signed and Shared - good luck to all of us...somehow I'm just not all that hopeful. Stop the oil subsidies and the price of oil at the pump will suddenly increase to $6.00+ a gallon, people will not like that. End the banks subsidies and the loans will dry up, ending the opportunity for house loans, SBA and so many other things. Because it's a necessary response? No. Because that is what they have threatened and can do, so they will do it, be prepared for a big fight with Big business and banking in the next four years.

We demand that the Administration and Congress reject any so-called "Grand Swindle" and settle the Fiscal Showdown according to these three principles:

End the Bush tax cuts for families earning more than $250,000 annually.
No cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security benefits.

Excellent explanations of the bullying efforts of corporate interests Kit and summary of what the bottom line must be for a healthy economy and the common good of all Americans in this last 2012 budget decision set. Sure wish I could send you a green star, but they still say it is too soon.

The division between the middle class and those with wealth has grown enormously wide. More people are being forced into poverty to line the pockets of the Park Avenue babies who feel entitled to appropriate the wage of the people who do the real work in this country and this has to stop.
