Reid Spokesman Responds To Republican Calls For Repeal Of Wall Street Reform

Washington, DCJim Manley, spokesman for Nevada Senator Harry Reid, released the following statement this evening in reaction to Republican calls for repeal of Wall Street reform legislation.  Senate Democrats led final Senate passage of Wall Street reform legislation earlier this afternoon:

“The ink hasn’t even dried yet on our bill that takes away big banks’ ability to gamble away our jobs, savings and houses, and Republicans already want to give it back.  This is the Republican job-killing agenda in full effect: they want to go back to the system that cost 8 million Americans their jobs because that’s what their friends on Wall Street want, and that’s who they’re looking out for.”
