96. paid back to WHOM???
That's what the issue is here and it's VERY real. All those mega billions were taken from the tax paying citizens driving up the deficit and given to the Fed to bail out the banks. The banks took that money, bought toxic accets with it and also gave themselves stargeringly huge bonuses for being total and utter failures and instead of using it to put it back into the system, they used it buy up smaller banks thus making them even up to 100 TIMES bigger than when they were "too big to fail".

And you're saying that they paid it all back, so all is good. REALLY???? Who the fuck did they pay it back TO??? They paid it back to the FED - NOT the government nor the tax payers that were made to give it to them! Why isn't all this mega trillions back in the hands of we the people who gave it to them??? Why isn't it given back to the government that took it from we the people so that the government could DO something with it help the people???

And you think that this is all GOOD???? That this is not a real issue????
