So I see Attorney General Eric Holder is saying he’ll pounce on blatant violations of voting rights. Good, that’s one part of his job.
But another comes immediately to mind. All this Too Big to Fail shit. Where the hell is DOJ on this? I mean in the 1980’s they managed to breakup the biggest monopoly going, The Bell System. Granted, it’s pretty much come back together again but for wireless not wired.
But why not break the big banks into a million little pieces? Sure they might be too big to fail but they’re not too big to break them up. It’s something the attorneys at the DOJ would just love to sink their teeth in and they have or should have the institutional acumen to do it.
So I have to ask, why not?
