Sign A Petition To Break Up The Big Banks

Minutes ago, Senate Republicans filibustered the Wall Street accountability bill!

Senate Democrats now face a choice: water down the bill and beg Republicans for "bipartisanship" or offer an even STRONGER bill and DARE Republicans to keep blocking reform.

Two brave Senators -- Sherrod Brown (D-OH) and Ted Kaufman (D-DE) -- announced they will stand strong and do what politicians have been afraid to do for too long: offer a proposal to BREAK UP the big banks that dragged our whole economy down.

I say we take off and nuke the entire site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

The big banks tricked us into subsidizing their irresponsible, criminal shenanigans. They held our economy hostage; we need to replace them with something less fragile and more fault-tolerant. Anything too big to fail is too big to exist. They are a haven of criminality and a threat to American financial security. Destroy them forever and pass laws against their ever being built again.
