Bustos Statement on the Passage of the “Wrong CHOICE Act”

WASHINGTON – Today, Congresswoman Cheri Bustos (IL-17) released the following statement after House Republicans passed legislation to undo critical protections designed to prevent another financial crisis.

“Washington Republicans just voted to bring us back to the days of too-big-to-fail when reckless behavior on Wall Street created a financial crisis that drained the savings of millions of hardworking families. This dangerous bill to undermine basic consumer protections and roll back reforms that were designed to prevent another recession should alarm all Americans. I strongly support doing more to help our small businesses, community banks and credit unions compete and succeed, but this legislation would take us in the wrong direction.”
