Tell Big Bank CEOs Moynihan, Dimon, and Stumpf: Pay US Back – Click here to sign the petition
Bank of America, JP Morgan Chase, and Wells Fargo executives are earning just as much as they did prior to the financial crisis. In 2010, the CEOs of these three banks made
almost $50 millions dollars combined. Compare that to a recent census report that revealed that in 2010, there were more than 42 million people living in poverty, the highest recorded number in 50 years.
American families have been picking up the tab for too long. Millions of people are searching for good jobs. Pensions are being cut. Our kids’ education and future is on the line. Right now, too many politicians are focusing on cuts, not on where to find the money to create the good jobs we need and the healthy communities we desreve. But we know where the money is. It’s on Wall Street.
JP Morgan Chase, Bank of America and Wells Fargo must Pay US Back for the:
- Millions of homes they have taken away from families through fraudulent foreclosure
- Billions of dollars they’ve drained from us through tax-payer funded bailouts and unfair practices
- More than a trillion dollars they are sitting on instead of paying their fair share of taxes that could support our kids’ education, our pensions, and our roads and bridges or investing into small businesses to create good jobs.
Add your voice to this petition to demand that the big bank CEO’s Jamie Dimon, John Stumpf and Brian Moynihan Pay US Back!
We, the undersigned, demand that JP Morgan Chase, Wells Fargo, and Bank of America:
Pay their fair share of taxes – Stop draining government of revenue and pay their statutorily required 35% corporate income tax. Stop gaming the system through off-shore tax shelters, loopholes, and scams.
Reduce principal for all under water homeowners to current-market value – End the foreclosure crisis, reset the housing market, pump billions of dollars back into the economy and create 1 million jobs a year.
Invest in American jobs – Stop sitting on over one trillion dollars in cash reserves that could be invested into small businesses, the main source of jobs in the U.S. as well as into additional into job-generating investments.
Enough is enough.
