OPPOSE THE WALL STREET-DEREGULATING FINANCIAL CHOICE ACT (H.R.10)
GOAL: Urge your House Representative to vote ‘NO’ on the Financial CHOICE Act (Bill H.R. 10) that will gut financial protections put in place following Wall Street’s attacks on our families.
DEADLINE: TODAY, JUN 8 (House will vote on bill today!)
OPTION 1: Call your U.S. House Representative @ (202) 224-3121
SCRIPT: “My name is [your name] in [ZIP code] calling as a constituent of Representative [your US Rep]. I am asking for him/her to vote ‘NO’ on the Financial Choice Act (Bill H.R. 10). This bill would make it easier for big banks and predatory lenders to rip people off, and it would increase the likelihood of another financial crisis.
OPTION 2: One Click Tweet – http://ctt.ec/7t8d2 (REMINDER: Input your representative’s twitter handle in the tweet before sending!)

REASON: The Financial CHOICE Act (Bill H.R. 10) will end too many vital consumer protections that were created by the Dodd-Frank Act after the financial industry meltdown of 2008 triggered the Great Recession, leaving Americans open to fraudulent financial advice. It “effectively guts” the CFPB and exposes consumers to “unfair, deceptive, or abusive acts” perpetrated by “shoddy financial actors.” And, it would let Wall Street firms engage in more of the risky behavior that caused the financial crisis in the first place.
