      the bailouts & subsequent legislation are a very mixed bag,to be sure. I'd guess the foci on the parts of it that did not work toward justice (yes,that is a short-cut word) is fallout from 30+ years of growing income inequality as well as the byzantine nature of legislation.
       Your point,that the bailouts included some money for good and useful things,is not best made in this sort of diary,IMO. Since I'm also of the opinion that these good things need championed,I hope you choose to use your voice to do so.
