FTHEBANKS HITS OBAMA WHERE IT HURTS
BRING A DOLLAR TO DANGLE, AND A POT TO BANG
On June 4th, members of F The Banks will be escalating our campaign to highlight the failure of the government to investigate the financial crisis.
Recently, we took our campaign to Attorney General Schneiderman’s office, to try and take charge of his underfunded, understaffed, and underachieving “Task Force”. Now, we’re going straight to his boss, Obama. And we’re going to hit him where it hurts: his campaign funds.
It’s predicted that the Obama campaign and related PACs will spend over a billion dollars trying to get him re-elected. For just a few cents out of every campaign dollar, they could fully fund the task force that he touted in his State of the Union speech.
Instead, Congress is refusing to fund it, and the task force is floundering.
While Obama is fundraising for his campaign, we’ll be holding a fundraiser for what really matters: bringing the banks to justice.
We’ll bring one dollar each, and wave it in their faces to underscore the ridiculous disparity between campaign spending and the amount of money needed to bring justice to the bankers who caused this crisis. We will bang our pots and pans to bring noisy attention to their quiet investigation.
BILLIONS FOR A CAMPAIGN, NOTHING FOR JUSTICE?
FIGHT BACK. HIT THEM WHERE IT HURTS
BRING A DOLLAR AND A POT OR PAN
