Gee, I am sure the person on a tight budget that can't get a savings account that pays over .02% is pretty pleased to hear the banks are doing well. Never mind all the other ancillary effects of an eroding $ like increased costs of commodities. The important thing is those banks and big companies....**** the people who bailed them out. I mean like they matter, right??
