Rep. Ellison Votes No On S. 2155
WASHINGTON — Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) released the following statement after the U.S. House passed the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act (S.2155):
“Today Congress passed a disgraceful handout to Wall Street. This bill will enrich banking giants like Citigroup and J.P. Morgan Chase, and banking executives who are already enjoying record profits. Meanwhile, it will make it harder for black and brown people to become homeowners, and will increase the chances of another taxpayer bailout.
“The American people didn’t send us to Congress to work for Wall Street. I have no doubt that millions of people will remember this vote, and they will make their voices heard.”
