Thanks for signing. Now can you donate to help our transparency campaign?
This is what we're up against. From Roll Call:
Banks’ Cash Still WelcomeOur campaign to demand transparency is up against well-funded bank lobbyists who have deep pockets and the ears of Congress. We're ready to fight, but it will cost money. Our support comes from people like you -- can you chip in so we can fight to restore trust in our economy?
Members of Congress are scoring political points tongue-lashing Wall Street for its role in the economic meltdown, but they are proving less willing to put their campaign money where their mouths are.
The list of 400 companies that have taken advantage of the $700 billion bailout package includes some of the biggest donors in politics: Goldman Sachs, Citigroup, JPMorgan and Morgan Stanley, among others. Altogether, TARP recipients doled out $5.2 million to members of the Senate Banking and House Financial Services committees in the 2008 election cycle, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.
