Join the Showdown on Wall Street April 29th!

The same financial institutions that put 8 million in the unemployment line, drove a record foreclosure crisis, sent our economy into a tailspin, and sucked up trillions in taxpayer bailouts, are back to raking in the profits and bonuses. They are also spending millions to defeat financial reform in the Senate.

It's time to say converge in the belly of the beast, Wall Street, on April 29th at 3:30PM and tell the Banksters that enough is enough. The rocking campaigners at National Peoples Action, Service Employees International Union (SEIU) and the AFL-CIO are asking you to join them in their call to break up the "too big to fail banks" and protect American consumers. Find out more at Show Down in America. And keep an eye on for the latest on the financial reform bill which will be on the Senate floor next week.

At first I thought this might be a centrist web site but now I know you support the radical left. Too bad. I was looking for something to give me balanced information.
