LATEST SENATOR BROWN
U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) – ranking member of the Senate Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee – today issued the following statement regarding Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-KY) comments that Democrats are blocking efforts to dismantle the Dodd-Frank Wall Street reform law.
“The Senate Republican leader seems to have forgotten the harm Wall Street’s greed and reckless behavior caused to millions of working families and taxpayers who were forced to clean up the mess. Democrats will do everything in our power to block efforts aimed at leaving Americans at the mercy of predatory lenders and on the hook for another megabank bailout. If this were really about community banks, we might have come to an agreement years ago, but Republicans are once again using them as leverage to help a rogue’s gallery of special interests.”
