Join Occupy the SEC in Pushing Congress to Reject Dodd-Frank Deregulation

PETITION AGAINST LAST MINUTE DILUTION OF DODD-FRANK

As your constituent, I am requesting that you OPPOSE current attempts to roll-back crucial parts of the Dodd-Frank Act. Specifically, you should oppose Section 630 of the Senate Amendment to H.R. 83 (?Omnibus Bill?) and Title III of the House?s current version of the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act of 2014 (?TRIA?).

Section 630 would gut Dodd-Frank?s swaps pushout rule, and Title III would free so-called ?end-users? from margin requirements in derivatives trading. If passed, Section 630 would increase the chances that risky derivatives trading would once again require government bailouts. Similarly, Title III would proliferate credit risk from discrete end-users to the broader global economy.

These provisions are nothing more than an attempt by Wall Street lobbyists and their friends in Congress to eviscerate important derivatives reforms implemented by the Dodd-Frank Act. To make matters worse, bank-friendly members of Congress are trying to sneak in these dangerous provisions into important, last-minute bills that have nothing to do with Dodd-Frank. By allowing the passage of Section 630 of the Omnibus Bill and Title III of the TRIA, you and other members of Congress would only be paving the way for further gutting of Dodd-Frank, which would surely jeopardize our nation?s economy, line the pockets of wealthy financiers, and damage the fiscal health of every day Americans.

A complete version of this petition, including detailed arguments against these provisions can be found at:

Passage of this bill with Section 630, as written, should be considered a financial attack against the American people and the middle class in this country. Hasn't Wall Street stolen enough from hard working American families? Stop the looting and criminal behavior of these bank lobbyist. Please do the RIGHT THING!

How greedy can you bastards get? You already busted the world economy once, what makes you think you should be allowed to do it again?

When the bank's casino operations go bust, we the peasants will be stuck with the bill on what it costs to bail them out again. Why doesn't our unprepared president have line item veto power?

Your action of inaction on the budget until the last minute to allow inclusion of provisions that hurt the vast majority or citizens is an outrage.

For the life of me, I can not understand why the budget was left to the last minute and what relaxing bank regulations has to do with funding the government. What should be done is prosecute the banks that tanked our economy, got bailed out and refuse to loan to or help the very people that bailed them out and kept their bonuses funded. This is an outrage and should not be in the budget. If this is a shadow of what a Republlican house and Senate look like, we may as well let the Chinese come and run the country, because we will have no democracy left anyways.
