Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement after the House failed to suspend the rules and pass Republicans’ 11-bill Wall Street giveaway package:

“House Republicans need to rethink their special-interests-first plan for this Congress.  The American people expect Congress to champion the paychecks of middle class families, not the profits of big banks.  Wall Street giveaways introduced in the dead of night are no way to govern.

“Democrats will continue to fight back against Republicans’ Wall Street wish list agenda.  Republicans should stop undermining the middle class, and join Democrats to build better infrastructure and bigger paychecks for every American family.”
