Thom Hartmann: Why the U.S. is suing the S&P



Richard Eskow, Campaign For America's Future joins Thom Hartmann. So this might be less about actually holding Wall Street suits accountable, and more about revenge for embarrassing our nation. Or - did President Obama get the message from the last election - which is the American people are sick of the crimes on Wall Street and actually want to see some suits thrown in prison?

1. It might be, but it isn't. S&P did mislead on their ratings, and they knew it when they did it.

Rating the the subprime bundled bonds as AAA was total misrepresentation.

As far as S&P downgrading U.S. debt, I question that downgrade also. Based on what? The republican objective to destroy the U.S. economy, with S&P willing republican accomplices

A lot of cities and communities lost billions because of their faux ratings on this garbage subprimes that they inflated

In fact S&P, and the other rating agencies should be out of business for their ratings
