In Key Wall Street Reform Vote Today, Congressman Boozman Shills for the Big Banks, Ignores Middle Class Arkansas Families

Congressman John Boozman today continued his long history of standing up for the special interests, big banks and Wall Street and voted against much-needed legislation that would protect Arkansas consumers and bring greater transparency to the nation’s financial markets.

“Congressman Boozman today voted to protect the Wall Street banks that caused the most significant economic downturn our nation has experienced since the Great Depression,” said DSCC National Press Secretary Deirdre Murphy.  “Time after time, Congressman Boozman proves that he backs the Wall Street banks that hurt Arkansas’s small businesses and cost many Arkansans their jobs and savings.  Arkansans deserve a U.S. Senator who stands up for them, not the special interests.”

Wall Street reform legislation provides strong consumer financial protections; brings the risky trading of derivatives, which helped trigger the crisis, into the light of day; provides the authority to wind down firms whose collapse would threaten the entire financial system; and ends taxpayer-funded bailouts.
