Senators Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe of Maine like to be referred to as moderates. But this morning, they voted to keep language in H.R. 6304 that kills citizens’ ability to bring corporations to court when corporations break the law. A number of such cases were pending in court and were set to blow the lid on the extent of corporate lawbreaking in America — corporate lawbreaking so wide in extent that only one corporation in an entire field of telecommunications corporations did not break the law by giving or selling away millions of Americans’ cherished secrets to agents of the U.S. government.
Senators Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe just engaged in a broad daylight coverup of criminality on a huge scale.
That’s not moderate.
