Yesterday, thousands of you called your Attorney General and demanded
that they choose a side: the homeowners they've sworn to protect or the
big banks that broke the law and bankrupted the economy. Calls were made
in 47 states!

Here's what some of you reported after the call:

"I tried 3 different numbers to leave a message and they were all FULL!
I had to keep calling back. I'm glad so many people called, I've been so
looking forward to today!!"

"I told her (the receptionist) the middle class taxpayers are not going
to stand for this any longer. We are going to demand that politicians

Keep the pressure on!

Here's how you can continue to build our voice:

Keep the calls coming all week. We've received several emails asking if
people can call their Attorney Generals throughout the week. The answer
is: "ABSOLUTELY!" Please continue to spread the word and call in
multiple times if possible. The number again is 866-200-6444.
