U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder announced Wednesday that in the coming months, there will be a number of cases brought against financial firms that were responsible for the economic meltdown that led to the Great Recession.
Originally reported by The Wall Street Journal, Mr. Holder stated that a number of investigations are finally coming to a head.
In the interview, which took place on Tuesday, Mr. Holder said, “My message is, anybody who’s inflicted damage on our financial markets should not be of the belief that they are out of the woods because of the passage of time. If any individual or if any institution is banking on waiting things out, they have to think again.”
I have only to ask, if yet again we of the left decide to put our backing behind this administration, if but only for these measures to be pursued and to give Democrats further bolstering throughout Congress come November this year, will we finally see a shift of the political spectrum away from the pro-rich pro-cronies of the reactionary right? Or will this be yet another time his administration speaks like the left, making promises it will never keep because it was always pre-made by, pre-packaged for, and pre-sold to corporate America? Forgive me for I’ll not hold my breath.
