The Federal Reserve loaned big banks almost 8 trillion dollars

And Bloomberg reporters had to fight tooth and nail to get that information. That’s how messed up the investment banks are.

And, even worse, those loans that were made with zero conditions probably made the banks an easy $13 billion in profits, which they then probably gave back to themselves as bonuses or maybe gave them to politicians or … goddamnit that’s messed up.

Eliot Spitzer is right: those profits should be taken back, including anything given to politicians. 

Am I doing it wrong?
