I don't dispute that the financials are TBTF and they are a problem. I advocated a Swiss approach to the bail outs instead of what we did.

That being said, the financials have recapitalized as well as most of the private sector. Balance sheets are in the best position they've been in for a long time. Leverage is also considerably lower than prior to the crisis.
