Really? I thought this was the "free market"? WHere is a person's cash if they are about to be bankrupt? WHat about a small business? What about a mid size company?
I get it, banks get different rules. They can't fail.

THe same people screaming "Obama is socialist, the left is socialist" are the same people getting more socialism in the form of tax breaks, bailouts and favors that its not even funny.

**** banks. We need Andrew Jackson. He knew they were FULL OF **** and paid them off and didn't renew their charter.

Thanks Woodrow Wilson for ****ing America.
