"We ain't a sharp species. We kill each other over arguments about what happens when you die, then fail to see the ******* irony in that." - Justin Halpern
As far as subsidies for bankers goes, it was necessary to save the financial system. That's the price we had to pay for foolishly dismantling common sense, effective bank regulations that were put in place following the Great Depression. Of course that huge cost does answer the complaint that the wealthy don't get much in return for their higher tax burden.
