THE FOLLOWING MESSAGE WAS FROM PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA.
When you and I set out on this journey three years ago, we knew that
ours would be a lengthy struggle to build a new foundation for this
country -- one that would require squaring off against the special
interests who had spent decades stacking the deck in their favor.
Today, it is clear that you have shifted the odds.
This morning, I signed into law a bill that represents the most sweeping
reforms of Wall Street since the Great Depression, and the toughest
consumer financial protections this nation has ever seen. I know that I
am able to do so only because the tens of thousands of volunteers who
make up the backbone of this movement overcame the most potent attack
ads and the most powerful lobbying the special interests could put
Our special-interest opponents and their Republican allies have now set
their sights on the elections in November as their best chance to
overturn the historic progress we've made together.
Organizing for America counts entirely on supporters like you to fight
back -- no special interests, no corporate PACs. To keep making change
and to defend the change we have already won,
Because of Wall Street reform, we will ensure that Americans
applying for a credit card, a mortgage, or a student loan will never
again be asked to sign their name under pages of confusing fine print.
We will crack down on abusive lending practices and make sure that
lenders don't cheat the system -- and create a new watchdog to enforce
these consumer protections.
And we will put an end to taxpayer-funded bailouts, giving us the
ability to wind down any large financial institution if it should ever
The passage of Wall Street reform is at the forefront of the change we
seek, and it will provide a foundation for a stronger and safer economy.
It is a foundation built upon the progress of the Recovery Act, which
has turned 22 months of job losses into six consecutive months of
private-sector job growth. And it is a foundation reinforced by the
historic health reform we passed this spring, which is already giving
new benefits to more than 100 million Americans, ushering another 1
million Americans into coverage by next year.
But today's victory is not where our fight ends.
Organizing for America and I will move forward in the months ahead on
the tough fights we have yet to finish -- even if cynics say we should
wait until after the fall elections. This movement has never catered to
the conventional wisdom of Washington. And we have fought to ensure that
our progress is never held hostage by our politics.
You and I did not build this movement to win one election. We did not
come together to pass one single piece of legislation. We are fighting
for nothing less than a new foundation for our country -- and that work
is not complete. As we face the challenges ahead, I am relying on you to
stand with me.
We need you to contribute so we have the
resources necessary going into the election.
Please donate $5 or more today and help Organizing for America lay the groundwork
for the fights that lay ahead.
Thank you for helping us get here,
President Barack Obama
