A Real Choice

In a post at The Hill, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) has a great summary of the differences between Democrats and Republicans.
Throughout the 111th Congress, Republicans have opposed every effort to help Main Street Americans, while supporting those corporate interests that wreaked havoc on Wall Street and unleashed disaster in the Gulf. When it comes to the best interests of the American people, the contrast is clear: Democrats are taking serious action on important issues, such as Wall Street reform, the economy, healthcare and fiscal responsibility; Republicans are trying to block progress and change, hoping that this will be to their advantage in the November election.

Hoyer neatly sums up the real choice for voters this fall. Here's a sample of his points on Wall Street reform:

Democrats fought to protect American taxpayers by proposing fair rules of the road that put the referee back on the field.

Republicans fought for big Wall Street banks and maintaining the same failed system that resulted in the financial crisis.

Definitely worth a read!
