#Republicans vote to let banks steal more from you and your family

Once again, Congressional Republicans have voted to put the interests of their political patrons and deep-pocket donors ahead of the American people.

The Senate voted Tuesday night to kill a controversial rule that would have allowed Americans to file class-action suits against banks instead of being forced in many cases into private arbitration.

The move by the Senate followed a similar action by the House in July to rescind the rule. President Trump is expected to sign the repeal legislation, providing a major victory for the financial industry.

Vice President Mike Pence cast the deciding vote after the Senate tied 50-50. No Democrats or independents supported the move.
