Obama adds Wall Street visit to week

Statement by Press Secretary Robert Gibbs

On Thursday, President Obama will travel to New York City where he will deliver remarks at Cooper Union on Wall Street reform. Almost two years after the crisis hit and almost one year after the Administration first laid out a detailed plan for holding Wall Street accountable and protecting consumers, he will call for swift Senate action. The crisis has already wiped out trillions of dollars in family wealth and cost over 8 million jobs. The President will also remind Americans what is at stake if we do not move forward with changing the rules of the road as a part of a strong Wall Street reform package.

More details will be announced when they become available.

Okay, what I want to know is will ANY Republicans support President Obama to help hold Wall Street executives accountable and protect consumers?

I mean Republicans, you guys & girls love fiscal responsibility, therefore I expect a few Republican Senators to back President Obama.

Republicans, Conservatives or Tea-Baggers, I want you to know, you make it hard to get on board when rebuking every thing someone does to benefit the American people.

Understand, I am not a Democrat or Republican.


That is all I ask.

The ball is in your court.
