TOO BIG TO FAIL Those banks that were failed out were too big to fail and they have paid back the money used to bail them out. If they had been allowed to fail, we would have failed also. They are lowering mortgage and mortgage payment, giving loans to first home buyers and to by other things such as cars and the auto industry was too big to fail also. Small banks and loan companies were not able to give those loans, because theyre not big enough. Allowing big banks to fail is just like letting Medicare and Social Security fail. By the way, Medicare and Social Security, unemployment insurance are mandatory programs so why dont village idiots have them repealed? If you work, you have to pay into these programs and other programs as well. You are force to pay into them even if you never use them. Village idiots are a bunch of idiots along with right wing nuts.
