n the past, as part of Occupy Our Homes, you’ve helped hard hit families fight Wall Street bankers looking to take their homes, a mission at the core of the Home Defenders League, a partner of OOH. That’s why we think you’d want to know about this campaign we just launched to take the fight against Wall Street criminals to the next level. We’re calling the campaign “100 Days to Fix What Wall Street Broke”. Here’s what it’s all about. And you can join here: http://salsa.wiredforchange.com/o/6267/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=7176&tag=OOH

100 days.

The first 100 days of the second Obama Administration is moment when we begin to judge President Obama’s legacy. This as his last chance to ensure a legacy of justice for the millions of homeowners, taxpayers and retirees whose homes, savings, and pensions were stolen by Wall Street bankers.

On Monday, when President Obama said, “Our country cannot succeed when a shrinking few do very well and a growing many barely make it”, we took him at his word. That’s why today, along with allies like the Home Defenders League, we are launching the “100 Days to Fix What Wall Street Broke” campaign. We cannot address the growing many barely able to make it if we do not address the mess Wall Street bankers have left us. Now is the time for President Obama to live up to his own words and to cement his legacy as a President who upheld the rule of law, held bankers accountable for their crimes, and helped the hardest hit, especially communities of color, stay in their homes.

Tell the President to (1) Prosecute Wall Street bankers for stealing our homes, savings, and livelihoods and (2) Keep people in their home by resetting their mortgages.

While it’s always easy to beat up on Congress, the President and his Administration can take strong and effective actions to achieve these goals without any action at all by Congress. All it requires is the courage and determination to stand up to Wall Street. So that’s what we’re demanding: bold action. The Administration must use every available legal, enforcement, and market tool available to keep the President’s past promises and hold Wall Street accountable.

Click here to add your voice in demanding that the Obama Administration (1) Prosecute Wall Street bankers for stealing our homes, savings, and livelihoods and (2) Keep people in their home by resetting their mortgages.

The devastation wrought by Wall Street bankers that cost our economy $12.8 trillion can’t be resolved until justice is delivered to the millions who have lost their homes, the millions still facing foreclosure and the 14 million who are still underwater. [1] This is especially critical for low- and moderate-income families and families of color who have seen nearly all of their wealth stolen by the greed of Wall Street bankers. [2]

That’s why the 100 Days Campaign is pushing the President and his federal regulators and enforcement agencies to take bold action NOW:

Stop giving the bankers “get out of jail free” cards and indict the executives heading up the financial crimes syndicate;
When banks admit to their wrongdoing to avoid jail time, get real money out of them and make sure restitution goes to those who need it most;
Reset mortgages to fair market value, putting money back into the hands of the homeowners the banks stole from.

This campaign is ambitious, but the scale of the destruction demands it. President Obama’s legacy will rest on how future generations perceive his ability to deal with the core cause of the economic wreckage of the past four years: reckless practices by Wall Street bankers emboldened by lax regulation, poor oversight, and their outsized influence in the halls of Congress. Our 100 Days Campaign gives him the opportunity to live up to his best intentions and past pledges.

Join the campaign and push the Obama Administration to take the bold action we and our country needs.

In solidarity,

Nathan, Jeff, Kevin, and the entire Home Defenders League team

Spray-painted on the side of a building in Oklahoma City:
"Team 5
4-19-95
We search for the truth
We seek justice.
The courts require it.
The victims cry for it.
And God demands it!"

This situation isn't the same as the bombing in Oklahoma City, but I still think this quote is relevant.

Noted and signed. Thanks J.L. No one company should be too big to fail, and no one person should be overlooked because they have lots of money; which was probably stolen from honest investors.
