Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., has, with three co-sponsors, introduced major new legislation that might just help avoid another financial meltdown like the one in 2008.
A bill she calls a “new 21st Century Glass-Steagall Act to once again separate ordinary banking from the high-risk activities that broke our economy” needs our support.

I blogged about it this morning at
 “Sen. Elizabeth Warren proposes major banking overhaul.”

“The bill gives the financial institutions five years to split their commercial and investment businesses into distinct entities – shrinking the size of our big banks and taking an important step toward ending ‘Too Big to Fail,’ ” she writes in an appeal for support from Russ Finegold’s “Progressives United.”
Sen. Warren is appealing for our help.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
