Bloomberg has quantified the subsidy big banks get from taxpayers at $83 billion.  I guess this makes sense given the revolving door between jobs on Wall Street as bankers and jobs in government as Federal Regulators.   Probably too much to ask for it to stop.   But shouldn’t we send them a bill or something?
