Who: Ralph Nader

What: Ralph Nader will issue a statement to Hank Paulson asking him to give 25% of his own money from the fortune he made on Wall Street ($150 million) to help bailout his comrades

When: 1.30 pm – 2.00 pm

Where: In front of the Treasury Building, 1500 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington, DC

Today, October 14 at 1:30pm in front of the Treasury Building Ralph Nader will tell Wall Street success Hank Paulson: “Bail out your buddies, give 25% of your Wall Street fortune to your comrades.” Secretary Paulson admitted that many Americans did not feel the benefits of economic expansion because of the rising costs of energy, which can be attributed to Paulson’s speculating buddies on Wall Street. Why then should the citizens at-large in the United States be the only saviors of Wall Street? Secretary Paulson, Wall Street crony, will be called on to help.

About Ralph Nader
Attorney, author, and consumer advocate Ralph Nader has been named by Time Magazine one of the “100 Most Influential Americans in the 20th Century.” For more than four decades he has exposed problems and organized millions of citizens into more than 100 public interest groups advocating solutions. He led the movement to establish the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Consumer Product Safety Commission, and was instrumental in enacting the Safe Drinking Water Act, the Motor Vehicle Safety Act, the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and countless other pieces of important consumer legislation. Because of Ralph Nader we drive safer cars, eat healthier food, breathe better air, drink cleaner water, and work in safer environments. Nader graduated from Princeton University and received an LL.B from Harvard Law School.
