Rep. Shelley Moore Capito sits on the Financial Services Committee. She should be leading the effort to end taxpayer bailouts for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Yet She has not co-sponsored HR 1182, the bill that would do just that.

Help us push her to co-sponsor the bill: call Rep. Capito’s office and ask when she will co-sponsor HR 1182.

Here’s how:

  1. Call 202.225.2711 during east coast business hours and deliver the message outlined below.
  2. Fannie Mae is asking for another $4.6 billion bailout due to another quarterly loss, something that has become commonplace for the agency – it is time to end Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
  3. Fannie and Freddie helped cause the housing crisis worse and they have been on taxpayer life support since 2008.
  4. Rep. Capito sits on the Financial Services committee. She needs to lead the effort to= prevent another housing crisis and bailout: tackling the Fannie and Freddie problem once and for all.
  5. Please cosponsor H.R.1182, Bailout Elimination and Taxpayer Protection Act.

After you’re done with the call, use the form on the right to send us a report. We will keep the pressure on to ensure Representatives co-sponsor HR 1182.
