    I think too big to fail is idiotic public policy. That is, we should have regulations that prohibit that from ever becoming reality.

    Yet reality it was back in the days of TARP, if you recall.

    They were paid off to repeal GS because the banking interests wanted to act like Gordon Gekko, if that's spelled correctly.

    Of course it was, it was the illusion that self preservation was all the regulation they needed. Self deluded fools. They still think that is the case despite all we've been through...

    TARP ???? LOL !!

    You bought it hook line and sinker, didn't you?

    Hey the Democrats need people JUST LIKE YOU. TARP, ( most of which has been paid back ) was a FRACTION of the amount of debt we took in when Fannie and Freddie, the two Democrat run and Democrat protected GSE's, were taken into Conservatory in 2008.

    Over 5 and a half TRILLION dollars in sub-prime loans and securities, not too mention we paid hundreds of millions in interest payments ALONE since 2008 just to keep those two GSE's from going bankrupt.

    You need to educate yourself and stop buying into Democrat constructed False Narratives like "Too Big To Fail".

    Oh no, that's just a right wing meme. Didn't you hear? It can't be true of the all gifted Warren.

    First off, your link takes me to a left wing website, and THAT'S a joke.

    Second, I don't buy into the " Too Big To Fail" false narrative, nor do I buy into the charge that the Sub-Prime Bubble and it's collapse was caused by the " Big Evil Banks" or Wall Street".

    I've spent too much time researching and documenting the REAL REASONS behind the Sub-Prime Collapse, and that lying bitch Warren hasn't offered up any credible insight as of yet.

    She just perpetuates the narrative that the Democrats set in motion in 2008.

    Hell, they even made movies about it, " Too Big to Fail" and " Margin Call". Fiction, and more fiction.

    We use too and those laws are probably still on the book. I am not sure what they are called, monopoly laws but there is another name for them. Those laws were used to break up MA BELL although it has pretty much reconstutiated itself to be that big behomouth it was before it was split up. I do not agree with Warren on much, but I do with her on this. It is plain wrong to let any company be they banks or whatever to become too big to fail. Something needs to be done.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
