Statement from NHDP Chair Ray Buckley on the Senate Vote to Close Debate on Wall Street Reform

Concord -  New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley released the following statement on the United States Senate vote to close debate on comprehensive Wall Street reform legislation.
"The vote in the United States Senate to close debate on Wall Street reform is a critical step in once and for all fixing the disastrous Republican policies that drove our economy into a ditch."
"But it's outrageous that New Hampshire's own Senator Judd Gregg put the interests of the big banks ahead of the tax payers of the Granite State. His decision to vote against this critical piece of legislation demonstrates how truly out of touch he and the rest of his party are with the people of New Hampshire."
"And his fellow Republicans running for high office are no better.  Charlie Bass has described the policy as extremist, and Frank Guinta, Sean Mahoney, Rich Ashooh, and Kelly Ayotte, have decided to stay silent on these critical reforms."
"Republicans need to stop looking out for their Wall Street donors and start caring about the voters that sent them to Washington to look out for their interests."
