Last year was a rough year for banks in Congress, and the bankers I talk to are sick and tired of trying the same old strategies and expecting a different outcome. After all, like Einstein says, that is the definition of"INSANITY."
If we continue relying only on PACs and lobbyists, we will continue to get the same crushing disappointment each year. We must do something different! That's why interest in Friends of Traditional Banking (FOTB) is at an all-time high.
We supplement our allies working for us on Capitol Hill with the Friends of Traditional Banking model. By focusing on just two close races each election year and encouraging thousands of Friends to donate directly to those two races we can change the outcomes of those races.
The $5,000 PAC contribution alone doesn't do much in a world of $9 million for the average victorious Senate race. But together, a few thousand bankers kicking in a couple hundred bucks each can dump over $1 million into a single race. With that power we can replace a few enemies. Now THAT is what will get Congress to pay attention to our industry, and THAT is what we are going to do this year.
