PRESS RELEASE


American Patriots Tell Congress: Have the Courage To 'Pass Glass-Steagall Now!'

Oct. 16, 2013 (EIRNS)—This release was issued today by the Lyndon LaRouche Political Action Committee.

While President Obama and most members of Congress continue to negotiate over ever-more-draconian cuts in the living standards of the American population, the Lyndon LaRouche Political Action Committee has determined to cut through insanity, with a clarion call for the only policy which would begin to resolve the current crisis: the re-enactment of FDR's Glass-Steagall law.

LaRouche PAC has taken out an ad in the Washington, D.C. Hill newspaper, which tells the Congress in no uncertain terms to get the courage to act. "It is time for Congress to break with Wall Street banksters, their stooge in the White House, and their stooges on Capitol Hill." The ad will appear in print today, and in digital form October 17.

Within less than a week, forty-one political and constituency leaders across the United States, plus four international officials, endorsed the ad, which is headlined: "We Stopped Obama's Unconstitutional War in Syria, Now Stop Obama's Wall Street War on the United States of America, Pass Glass-Steagall Now!"

Ten state legislators are joined by local elected officials, trade union leaders, and some prominent personalities—such as Peace and Freedom Party presidential candidate Roseanne Barr, and economist Lyndon LaRouche—in signing the ad.

The Hill tabloid appears in both print and digital form. Over 23,000 copies circulate in Washington, D.C. and copies are e-mailed to 60,000 digital subscribers.
