Most members of Congress don't want you to think they are owned by Wall Street. So, even if they whisper sweet nothings in the ears of Wall Street executives behind closed doors, they will not defend Wall Street in public.

With the final version of the Wall Street reform bill to be hammered out in a congressional conference committee this month, this unwillingness by members of Congress to defend Wall Street in public gives us a chance to make the bill as strong as possible. That's why Open Left is joining with CREDO Action, MoveOn, and the Campaign for America's Future to demand that the entire conference committee be televised.

Tell Congress--televise the Wall Street reform conference committee!

Members of Congress are much more likely to support strong reform on television than they are behind closed doors. So, if we can get the meetings televised, we will make a big difference in this fight.

Tell Congress--televise the Wall Street reform conference committee!

Keep fighting,
