Financial Reform a “Monumental Achievement”
Statement from PolicyLink CEO Angela Glover Blackwell on the passage of the Dodd-Frank financial reform bill:
“Today, we took a dramatic step forward in reining in an unaccountable Wall Street that broadened the chasm of income inequality and threw millions of Americans out of work. The Dodd-Frank bill is a monumental achievement that will help keep our nation from being again dragged into a similar economic crisis.
The bipartisan majority who supported this bill deserve thanks from every American who will apply for a mortgage, open a 401K, or look for a job in the coming years. The Dodd-Frank bill lays a strong foundation for the fair, equitable growth America needs.”
