Enacting meaningful financial reform is critical for all Americans. When people talk about regulating derivatives, registering hedge funds, and ending "too-big-to-fail," it may sound remote to most Americans.  But the truth is, these issues affect the financial security of all Americans.  Financial reform will:

  • Help ensure that  consumers and investors have the information they need to make financial decisions that are right for them
  • Help ensure that our financial system provides a stable source of affordable credit and capital for businesses seeking to innovate and grow
  • Help reduce the risk that families’ savings are depleted by a financial and economic crisis spurred by irresponsible risk-taking on Wall Street
  • Help ensure that the American taxpayer never has to foot the bill for the irresponsibility of Wall Street
