Wall Street recklessness and corporate greed have destroyed our economy and hijacked our democracy. Corporate lobbyists representing the big banks paved the way to deregulate Wall Street, and now they're standing in the way of reforms that would protect people and strengthen our economy.
Wall Street has a DC address. K Street is where the corporate lobbyists have their offices and plot their schemes to buy and sell politicians like commodities on the stock exchange. Since last year and so far through 2010, big banks are spending about $1.4 million a day in lobbying and political expenses to fight reform. There are four Big Bank lobbyists for every member of Congress.
Join Jobs with Justice, National People's Action, the AFL-CIO, and SEIU on K Street May 17th to put a spotlight on the lobbyists that do Wall Street's dirty work—and to demand Congress stop accepting their bribes!
