The White House announced today that Obama will issue several executive orders over the next few weeks – beginning with today’s order changing the way Wall St. works:
“Over the next several weeks, the President will keep his foot on the gas by bringing forward new, concrete actions to strengthen the economic standing of working- and middle-class families.
“This starts today, with the President announcing a new executive action to help more hardworking Americans save for retirement by cracking down on hidden fees that hurt consumers and back-door payments that help Wall Street brokers.”
“And that’s just the beginning,” Deese says, promising Obama will then produce executive orders to change business practices, college tuition, and worker wages:
“And that’s just the beginning. Over the next several weeks, the President will announce new steps to protect consumers, make college more affordable, and help boost the wages of working and middle-class families trying to make ends meet.”
