I mean, c’mon. As I wrote yesterday, S&P is a tiny cog in the corrupt economic system. You want to investigate it? For what? Continuing an agenda of austerity advanced across the political system? That’s a show–unless the hearing is titled "How a corrupt economic system has robbed Americans–and how the political system aided and abetted the robbery". Otherwise, please don’t waste my time.
