Issue Position: Government Waste
We need to do a better job of reducing waste in government and preventing fraud on Wall Street. That is why I support the Reinventing Government initiative and enforcing strict rules on Wall Street so they can't harm the Colorado consumer.
Like you, I was appalled at the greed and arrogance exhibited by Wall Street that caused the economic downturn. We need to ensure that it never happens again and that consumers have more power to stand up for their financial rights, such as fair foreclosure proceedings, proper use of credit scores, reasonable access to equity for qualified borrowers, more transparency and incentives for hiring Americans instead of shipping jobs overseas.
