Can you help banking before the year ends?

Give the gift of helping Friends of Traditional Banking gear up for 2018!
Next year is going to be HUGE.  We have to step up and reward those that took the lead on Regulatory Reform, and we HAVE to create massive amounts of pain for those who caved into the credit union lobbyists on Tax Reform.
It has never been more apparent that Congress is driven by FEAR - fear of losing power.  The 2018 elections will be the chance for every Friend of Traditional Banking to re-introduce themselves into this equation.  By rewarding a friend or targeting an enemy, we will change the perception inside the beltway that it is safe to kick traditional banks. 
Help us prepare for 2018 bymaking a donation to FOTB's operations before the year is out. (All corporations may contribute directly to Friends of Traditional Banking EXCEPT national banks and government contractors, which are prohibited from making contributions to a Super PAC. However, contributions are permissible from non-bank affiliates of national banks, their holding companies, and any Political Action Committee (PAC) or individual. Contributions to FOTB are NOT tax-deductible.)

Back in Black: Community Bank Net Income Rises to $6 Billion But There are Competitive Pressures

Community banks posted solid financial performance for the third quarter of 2017, putting banks well into the black with profitability and distancing the financial crisis. Of the 5,737 insured institutions reporting third quarter financial results, 67.3 percent reported year-over-year growth in quarterly earnings.

 Friends of Traditional Banking is a non-partisan grassroots effort organized by bankers in 2012 to improve the political and regulatory environment for the traditional banking industry in the U.S. FOTB is the inverse of a PAC--instead of spreading a little bit of money to a lot of campaigns, they focus a lot of money on a couple of key campaigns.
