Showdown on K Street

Join us in DC on May 17th at 11:45am.

Break Wall Street lobbyists' grip on Congress and demand jobs and a real economic recovery!

Street ShowdownWall 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 addressK Street is where the corporate lobbyists have their offices and plot their schemes to buy and sell politicians like commodities on the stock exchange.  From 2009 through today, Big Banks have spent some $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 that Congress take immediate action to pass common-sense regulations that ensure they don’t take us all down again and help repair the damage that has already been done.
