Here's what you forgot to put about those "big bank bailouts". Those banks not only repaid the loans but did so with hefty interest. The government MADE money on those loans and a lot of it.

When are you going to harp on the auto industry? They received bailouts and have repaid... tell us. Nothing??!!! That's right. Broaden your horizons a bit and look past those big bad banks and get over the image of fat cat bankers - these places employ several hundred thousand people in this country - most are very hard working and are not wealthy.

Enough already. Look to Detroit, taxpaying citizens... How do you like bailing out automakers that have yet to repay their debt?
