Ring of Fire 5/19/13

This week on Ring of Fire: We'll tell you how lobbyists have found a way to influence government policies from inside government. Attorneys Howard Nations and Dave TeSelle will join us for that discussion. Wall Street bankers are stealing billions of dollars from cities and states every year, and securities attorney James Kauffman will tell you how that scheme is bankrupting America, one municipality at a time. The Supreme Court consistently rules in favor of big business, and author and legal scholar Niall McCarthy will tell us how our courts became just another wing of corporate America. And the insurance industry is gouging doctors with absurd premiums, and laying the blame on the legal system. Linda Lipsen, the CEO of the American Association for Justice, will tell you why that claim is completely false.
