Tell Congress to Take on Wall Street

PETITION TO CONGRESS:

The big banks are bigger than they were before the 2008 crisis, and CEOs and Wall Street money managers continue to benefit from obscene tax loopholes that cost us billions.

Stand up to Wall Street. To build a financial system that works for Main Street and working families, not just Wall Street billionaires, Congress should adopt the following agenda:

  • Close the carried interest loophole that lets billionaire Wall Street money managers pay lower tax rates than nurses or construction workers.
  • Create a Wall Street speculation tax that would discourage short-term bets and generate billions in new revenue to make college affordable, invest in our infrastructure, and create jobs in our cities.
  • End “Too Big to Fail” by breaking up the big banks – making them smaller, simpler, and safer.
  • Stop subsidizing million dollar CEO bonuses by ending the CEO pay tax loophole.
  • End predatory lending and also expand access to fair consumer banking services through “a public option” like postal banking.

We call on every member of Congress to co-sponsor and urge passage of this agenda.
