Banking and Securities Reform.  Immediate reenactment of the Glass-Steagall Act and vigorous enforcement of the “Volcker Rule” regulating speculation and long overdue enforcement Sherman Anti-Trust Act in all industries. Increased regulation of lending institutions and Wall Street firms, including criminal enforcement referrals by the SEC, FINRA, CFTC to the Justice Department and the other financial regulators including the recently established Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

The People further demand an immediate investigation by the Justice Department into the potential criminal practices of the Securities and Banking industry that directly led to the collapse of markets, mortgage-backed securities fraud, foreclosure crisis, trillion dollar bank bail-out and firm failures in 2007-2008.

New uniform federal regulations enacted to specifically limit what banks may charge consumers for ATM fees and/or the use of debit cards and other so-called miscellaneous fees.

I strongly agree with the immediate reinstatement of the Glass-Steagall Act and strict banking&financial regulations. I also add that the Federal Reserve be abolished and that a true Third Bank of the United States be established in its place and would issue credit to the states for investment in infrastructure and other projects and programs for the welfare of the nation.

An important part of Banking reform is to remove Corporate Bank control of the Federal Reserve Banks. The Federal Reserve should be solely controlled by the Government and used to finance Government debt with no interest charges. There is no logical for taxpayers to be forced to pay interest on borrowed money form Corporate Banks when the Constitution charges Congress to create and value money.
