2/06 Robert Kuttner, Perp Walk for Banks in Mortgage Crisis?

February 6, 2012

Robert Kuttner from The American Prospect magazine on status of proposed multi-billion dollar settlement in mortgage meltdown; will Obama’s Financial Fraud Unit have teeth? Will Big Banks see criminal prosecution?  And behind AG Schneiderman’s deal.  In the better half, business write-offs and corporate tax rates, ALEC’s mission statement on bill to Congress and Obama infringes on the religious conscience of Catholics.  Of course,  snarky Super Bowl follow-up.  Your calls and IMs.
