Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez-Masto Takes on Banks
Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez-Masto Takes on Banks

AIR DATE: December 19, 2011

Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez-Masto has guts. She's taken on big banks, like Bank of America, for allegedly frauding homeowners in her state.
On Cortez-Masto's watch, the Attorney General's office has been very active in suing the big banks, indicting fraudulent robo-signers and make sure that the banks live up to their agreements. Will she make a difference as homes remain under water and homeowners continute to think about walking away?
On our show, we discuss what she can do as state attorney general, and whether her efforts will, in fact, help Nevada homeowners.
Do you have any questions or suggestions for the state's AG? Let us know in the comment section below.

    Kudos to the few who are going after the finance fat cats. At least the top 1% of the people in these financial institutions (not just banks) needs to be investigated for their involvement in the financial collapse.

    The guilty should go into the general prison population to encourage the others to be good from now on. Alas, I remain skeptical as greed and "it seemed like a good idea at the time" and "I won't get caught" are pillars of human nature.

    Centralize business licensing. Right now to serve las vegas, you need a state business license, city of las vegas, city of north las vegas, city of henderson, city of boulder city and clark county. Same goes for building departments and other ways business has to interface with government.
