    because it's not based on reality.

    Business doesn't distinguish between making money and taking money.

      And it wasn't taken.  Maybe he didn't understand it at the time.  Maybe he thought that Dodd Frank would be enough.  Maybe this is just another case of the President not understanding all of the laws on the books.  There are many factors, but one thing is for certain, he belongs to a group of people who feel that essentially if the large banks don't do well the rest of the country sinks with them.

    •  How is not based in reality? Obama's own DOJ (1+ / 0-)

      has taken absolutely no steps to prosecute too big to fail banks, and Obama has made no move to break up to big to fail banks.  

      You may disagree with the opinion, but to say its not based in reality, is to willfully stick your head in the sand.
