With $80B pumped into AIG and a 9.5% unemployment rate, this argument of “systematic failure” and “things would be a lot worse” just doesn’t hold up. CIT is the largest lender in the country to small and med sized business, if anything, this is an illustration of how the Obama administration is attempting to close the door on anyone with aspirations to become more than middle class. Wall Street bailout= Good. Small Business bailout= Bad.

These people don’t live on the same planet as the rest of us. They make incomprehensible money irrespective of their performance. They probably thought they were bullet-proof.
