Statement from Lisa Donner, executive director, Americans for Financial Reform:

“Wall Street never tires of trying to gut financial regulations through backroom deals. That’s because they know that most Americans – from all places and all parties – think we need to be tougher on Wall Street, not create more loopholes. No members of Congress should allow policy riders that will make it easier for predatory lenders to rip people off, or threaten another financial crisis. If Congress want to considering giveaways to Wall Street, the American people need to have the chance to weigh in.”

Other groups affiliated with the Coalition for Sensible Safeguards weighed in here.
