Rocky Anderson on Corporations

Justice Party challenger for President; former mayor of Salt Lake City


Break up too-big-to-fail banks & prosecute Wall Street fraud

STEIN: We've gotten ourselves into great crises under both parties. And in many ways, Barack Obama expanded the bad policies of George Bush, with Wall Street bailouts that went ballistic.

ANDERSON: We need significant regulation of Wall Street and the financial industry. That's not happening under President Obama. It certainly isn't going to happen if there is a President Romney. Nobody is talking about breaking up the banks that are too big to fail. Nobody is talking about enforcement. There hasn't been one prosecution for the massive fraud on Wall Street during the Obama administration. So we're getting set up again, because these folks are serving the interests of Wall Street rather than serving the public interest. We need to get back to leadership like we had under FDR, like we cleaned up after the Depression, putting people to work and putting the people of this country first.
