Alternet has the interesting article If Obama Had Prosecuted Goldman Sachs’ Brain Trust, We Wouldn’t Be Plagued by Them Again in Trump’s Cabinet.
I’ll rearrange an excerpt from the article to put the emphasis where I think it belongs.
United States history features notable crackdowns after vast financial scandals. After the crash of 1929, the head of the New York Stock Exchange went to jail and the savings-and-loan scandals of the 1980s produced over 1,000 prosecutions.
[but despite this history] many chalk up President Obama’s lack of action to business-as-usual in Washington.
Well, this article is one more indication that Obama himself has brought on this disaster for us. Are we supposed to thank him, and cheer for him on his way out of office?
