    If you want to punish someone for harming the country, you can start with the politicians that pressured these banks ti make all those worthless loans.
    Are you familiar with the history of Glass-Steagall, what it meant to accomplish, how well it worked as designed, and the history of its repeal, including the players in that repeal?

    I wish we had 10 more Senators like Warren. She's great. She actually has the concerns of the American people at heart. Most others have the concerns of Wall STreet and the military industrial complex at heart.

    Yes, let's use Great Depression legislation from 80 years ago to fix this. Let's not do something logical like "just stop bailing them out" and "banish phrases like 'too big to fail'".

    Not sure if you're joking or not, but have you considered that the repeal of Great Depression legislation is what started our more recent problems?

    When was the last time the Federal government earned billions of dollars on an investment. That is what they made on the big bank "bailout".
