Cracking down on Wall Street to prevent another financial crisis on your street

[cnn-photo-caption image= caption="GETTY IMAGES"] Today President Obama is announcing a financial reform package that he says will give consumes more protection.

We want to hear from you. What do you think about the proposed reform? Does it go far enough? Do you think it’s even necessary? Leave a comment and we’ll share some of them on air in the CNN Newsroom, 11am ET – 1pm ET.
