Kucinich, Filner: “No U.S. Bailout for Foreign Banks”

Washington D.C. ( June 11, 2009) – Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH), a leader in opposition to the original TARP I and TARP II bailouts, and Congressman Bob Filner (D-CA) today sent a letter to Members of Congress urging them to vote against a supplemental appropriations that may include $108 billion for the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

“The most plausible explanation for the request … is that the funding would be used to bail out private European banks with U.S. taxpayer money,” said Kucinich and Filner in the letter.

The full text of the letter is attached.
