25. Just saw "The Big Short," which addresses this issue.

 

Of course average income taxpayers had to pay for the bailout - $ 9,500 per person according to CNN Money.

In my view, the film was better than the book because it emphasized, not just the "short," but the top-to-bottom underlying fraud. The banksters knowingly made and sold really bad paper. It was criminal.

All in all, the film was like a two-hour campaign ad for Bernie.

And a big part of the debt also comes from the totally unfunded Iraq and Afghanistan wars, and the Bush tax cuts.
