We, the taxpayers, have just bailed out many banks to the tune of tens of billions of dollars. These same banks are now changing credit card rates etc. to their advantage. I think they should have to pay the taxpayers back with interest.Also the banks should be subject to the same credit card terms that they apply to their clients! What do you think?

I think it doesn't matter what I think. The American taxpayer is not the squeaky wheel right now. Megabanks, foreign creditors, and unions - these are the folks calling the shots.

Well it looks like we may get our money back with interest if as reported today treasury has decided to let the banks all payback the money.The banks have been wanting to do this for some time. Its the government that has want to continue the loans.Looks like they were good loans if paid back this soon.Noe if the administrtion will just get started on toxic assets like they said we may get somewhere instead of the constant goals and we are gonna talk.
