Gubernatorial candidate Tom Holland has called out Senator Sam Brownback on his unwillingness to reform Wall Street. In a press release blasted Wednesday, Holland points out that Brownback has helped block an up-or-down vote on Wall Street reform that would prohibit the risky practices that many have attributed to the taxpayer bailout of the banking industry and the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression.
“Instead of working to reign in the greed and recklessness on Wall Street, Sam Brownback is once again playing political games in Washington DC,” said State Senator Tom Holland, Brownback’s Democratic opponent for governor. “Games like this may be normal in Washington, but we don’t need Sam Brownback bringing Washington DC politics back with him to Kansas.”
Holland paints Brownback’s “no” vote as a willingness to “team up with Wall Street” and allow banking executives to continue to continue “play political games in Congress.”
“As governor, I won’t play games, I’ll just work hard for the people of Kansas.”
