taxes on the banks

I would not be opposed to a temporary tax on the biggest financial institutions. Afterall, they were instrumental in getting us into this crisis. The government bailed them out. We still don’t know what the ultimate cost will be to the taxpayers. They certainly seem to have jumped back on their feet so yeah, I think a tax is in order. I would like to see Obama use this to reduce the deficit but I know that would never happen. Meanwhile Congress had to raise the debt ceiling by $1,900,000,000,000 to get through 2010. But he did call for a task force to take the rest of the year and study ways to reduce the deficit (outside of his 6.9 billion that he cut this year.)
