Washington, DC — Better Markets President and CEO Dennis Kelleher issued this statement on Gov. Rick Perry’s support for a Glass-Steagall-like law to separate lower-risk traditional commercial banking from higher-risk investment banking:

“Gov. Rick Perry has joined candidates like Gov. Martin O’Malley and Sen. Bernie Sanders in support of putting Glass-Steagall-like protections back into place to protect the American people from another devastating financial crash. Voters of both parties support strong, meaningful financial reform, and a growing number of Presidential candidates on both sides of the aisle support protecting families on Main Street from the high-risk activities on Wall Street. All candidates should make clear whether they support reinstating a Glass-Steagall-like law to provide layers of protection for America’s hardworking families and make sure they never again have to pay for bailing out Wall Street.”
