Money Influence 12/17

Wall Street: "Many Wall Street institutions have exerted extraordinary influence in Washington’s corridors of power, but Citigroup has risen above the others... There’s a lot of talk coming from Citigroup about how the Dodd-Frank Act isn’t perfect. So let me say this to anyone who is listening at Citi: I agree with you. Dodd-Frank isn’t perfect. It should have broken you into pieces." -- Elizabeth Warren

Citigroup just wrote the law repealing a major piece of Wall Street reform. For too long, the Big Banks have been getting away with buying our democracy in order to pad their profits. Elizabeth Warren shined the national spotlight on this issue -- and made big news this past week by calling for Citigroup to be broken into pieces.

Most Americans deplored the  "bail out" of the banks and still deplore the banking industry's risky practices that ultimately impact the public. To keep Warren’s momentum going, many individuals and groups will be heading to Citigroup HQ this Thursday at 11am to  call on Congress to break up the “too big to fail” banks like Citigroup.

Zephyr Teachout and other community leaders will be there along with the media.

What: Protest outside Citi headquarters

Where: Citi headquarters, 399 Park Avenue in Midtown Manhattan

When: Thursday at 10:40am
