Given the massive Wall Street bailouts, should "fiscal cliff" talks include taxing them?

As soon as I heard the idea of a small transaction tax, I thought it would be fitting if the rate was set so the first year it collected as much as Hank Paulson's $700 billion blackmail demand, and executive compensation of any kind over a million dollars can't be counted as a labor cost.

and so on.

1. It should have been done as a condition of the bailout along with repealing Gramm-Leach-Bliley.
