What's the problem? All we have to do is get rid of that pinko, socialistic, Nazi, communist-Social Security and Medicare, increase the Pentagon budget by 1.3 trillion a year, and above all give the billionaires free ice cream. Presto, enough tax money for the banks!

If we give banks another trillion, maybe that'll trickle down and create some retail jobs at places like Saks Fifth Avenue.

B of A are felons. I worked for them as Ops mgr. They got away with it in 2008 with Hankie Paulson/goldman sachs and will continue to do so until CONGRESS legislates against this.

Why shld we be responsible B of A was selling HELOC 30% interest loans with no documentation or downpayments. They are crooks and liars.
