Budget cuts we can't afford

Judging from their proposed budget, House Republicans would prefer to have Wall Street firms, billionaire CEOs and corporate lobbyists writing the rules instead of playing by them.

Their budget contains draconian cuts to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and the Securities and Exchange Commission – three federal agencies charged with implementing crucial Wall Street reforms.

These cuts will increase America’s vulnerability to another financial crisis and make the marketplace less safe for consumers.

Send a message to your senators urging them to oppose these cuts:
