Orrin Hatch Suspicious Of This Socialist Lawsuit Against America's Company, Goldman Sachs
Orrin Hatch, much like the single richest member of Congress, Rep. Darrell Issa, is concerned about this so-called "legal law suit of law" against the great company Goldman Sachs. Isn't it HMM SUSPICIOUS that the SEC filed this suit against a financial company's terrible business practices just as the Senate is considering major legislation about financial companies' terrible business practices? Is it quite possibly a junk lawsuit that's release was cleverly timed, as part of the Democrats' latest eccentric idea to extend a very modest sprinkling of the law to the sector that destroyed the entire global economic system semi-permanently a whole two years ago?
Eh, maybe. Maybe the timing is Wacky. Who knows what phone calls were made. On the other hand, shut up, because Goldman knew it was being investigated over the Abacus deal, and its legal team has been plotting its defense for months. And on a minor note, WHAT DOES ANY OF THAT HAVE TO DO WITH VOTING YES OR NO ON THE FINANCIAL REFORM BILL UNDER CONSIDERATION? We knew that a financial reform bill needed to pass well before the SEC did anything, because, again, of that semi-permanent global economic collapse that financial companies caused two years ago.
The actual "very suspect" timing story was something else: why did all 41 Republican senators sign and release a letter vowing to filibuster financial reform shortly after the SEC suit was announced? This was "very suspect" timing because it was very stupid timing. Although who knows, it will probably work, whatever.
