The big banks want Democrats to stop listening to Elizabeth Warren and start doing what Wall Street demands, no matter how damaging it is to the American people. As Reuters reported in an exclusive story:
"Representatives from Citigroup, JPMorgan, Goldman Sachs and Bank of America, have met to discuss ways to urge Democrats, including Warren and Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown, to soften their party's tone toward Wall Street, sources familiar with the discussions said this week...
Citigroup has decided to withhold donations for now to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) over concerns that Senate Democrats could give Warren and lawmakers who share her views more power, sources inside the bank told Reuters."
It's time we went on offense. The DSCC should not wait for Wall Street to decide its next move. Instead, the DSCC should tell Wall Street to get lost. The DSCC must stop chasing Wall Street money and start focusing on electing Democrats who will stand with Elizabeth Warren and other progressives. Will you stand with us?
Please join Robert Reich and sign DFA's petition to the DSCC: Refuse to accept donations from Wall Street banks like Citigroup, JPMorgan, Goldman Sachs, and Bank of America.
