WASHINGTON, DC - House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today after Senate Republicans blocked the Senate from debating Wall Street reform legislation:
“I am extremely disappointed that Republicans have once again blocked progress for middle-class Americans.  To a person, Senate Republicans showed today that they are continuing to put the interests of Wall Street above those of Main Street – just as House Republicans did when they voted against Wall Street reform in the House.  Democrats will keep fighting to help working Americans and ensure that taxpayers are not put on the hook for the risky decisions of the big banks on Wall Street.  We will enact legislation this year that holds Wall Street accountable and ends the idea that any bank is ‘too big to fail.’”
