7/30 Eliot Spitzer, Self Regulation of Wall Street a Joke as is Mitt Romney

July 30, 2012

Former NY Governor and host of View Point on Current TV, Eliot Spitzer discussed Tim Geithner’s testimony at the LIBOR hearings last week, explained why self regulation of Wall Street is a failure and commented on former Citi CEO Sandy Weill”s voicing support for breaking up too big to fail banks. Also Mitt Romney is the most “awkward politician” Eliot Spitzer has ever seen.

In the better half: Sam celebrated the 47th anniversary of Medicare, discussed the fake Bill Keller column on Wikileaks and a real Bill Keller column calling for slashing social security. The fake one makes a lot more sense than the real one, and in Mississippi a Church refused to marry a black couple.
