As their state’s chief consumer protection enforcers, Democratic AGs use the power of their offices to protect families, children, seniors and consumers from bad actors that attempt to cause harm. Whether it’s taking on predatory lending, price gouging, robocalls, or raising awareness about scams that target vulnerable communities, the work of Democratic AGs makes a real difference in the lives of working families.
Democratic AGs have taken on some of the biggest consumer fights across the country and won – returning millions of dollars to their states and constituents. Dem AGs have been fearless fighters for decades against some of America’s largest corporate interests, including the landmark settlement and legal work in the 1990s with the four largest tobacco companies in America that fundamentally changed our country.
Democratic AGs have protected children against a major e-cigarette maker, held some of the largest drug companies in the country accountable for their role in the opioid crisis, and put money back in consumers’ pockets when tax preparation services tried to defraud low-income consumers. Democratic AGs work both as individual offices and with each other in multi-state actions to hold companies and corporations accountable.
